Hillhouse International Enterprise Zone masterplan

In November 2015, Chancellor George Osbourne announced that Hillhouse International Business Park was designated as one of 26 new or extended Enterprise Zones across the UK.

The majority of Hillhouse is controlled by NPL Group a major developer that has significant experience in regeneration; including major energy and waste, residential, industrial, commercial and retail development throughout the UK.

NPL, in partnership with Wyre Council, the Lancashire Economic Partnership (LEP) and Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre Prosperity Board have commissioned consultants Mott McDonald to produce a masterplan that will cover the Enterprise zone until 2041.

The masterplan has been developed at the embryonic stage of the Enterprise Zone status period, to serve as a framework for the development of the site over its 25 year lifespan. As the site evolves, updated iterations of the masterplan will be produced every five years to ensure it remains accurate and supports the Enterprise Zone’s development. 

A three week public consultation on the draft masterplan closed on 1 November 2018 and a summary of the consultation comments received are available in the Consultation Report.

The consultation comments have informed the preparation of the final masterplan was formally adopted at Cabinet on 28 November 2018. The Masterplan will guide the development of the site, facilitate delivery of the Enterprise Zone and inform the preparation of the Implementation Plan.
