A more prosperous and better-connected region
Tom Goshawk, Head of Capital Programmes at D2N2 LEP, said: “The opening of the new link road through the Boots Enterprise Zone site will contribute to the D2N2’s aims for a more prosperous and better-connected region by unlocking the potential of the Boots Enterprise Zone to attract new investment and support jobs”.
Councillor Rebecca Langton, Portfolio Holder for Communities, Highways and Strategic Transport at Nottingham City Council, commented: “The new link road could be the key to unlocking significant potential for the city and the surrounding areas.
“Not only does it now create an opportunity to develop new homes for local people, but the Enterprise Zone also helps us to position Nottingham as a key destination for high-growth businesses. The benefits this brings to local residents through, inward investment and jobs will help us build a stronger economy as we recover from Covid -19 and lockdown restrictions are eased”.
Mark Chivers, Estates Director at Boots, comments: “Opening the access road has been a collaborative effort between Boots, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, D2N2 LEP and the Canals and River Trust.
“It is an important milestone in opening up the site for the visitors and colleagues of Boots and all the partners who work on the Enterprise Zone site. Importantly, the road opening means our surplus development land can be accessed and new residential and commercial projects can begin.
“We are thrilled to increase the connectivity of the site for the creation of the Health, Beauty and Well Being Enterprise Zone.”
