D2N2 is proud to have invested £2.52 million from the Local Growth Fund into the construction of the Seymour Link Road near Markham Vale.
The Seymour Link Road, which links the Markham Vale Enterprise Zone with junction 29a of the M1 motorway, officially opened in March 2017; to help ‘unlock’ development land with the potential to create over 1,000 new jobs.
This project was part-funded by both D2N2 (contribution £2.5million) and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnerships (£3.78m), as well as Derbyshire County Council (£1.26m).
Located on the site of the former Seymour Colliery, Markham Vale is being redeveloped for industry – particularly the manufacturing, technology, environmental and logistics sectors.
Part of the Markham Vale site was given Enterprise Zone status in 2011, meaning businesses which locate there can receive tax relief and other benefits. The Seymour Link Road will give access to businesses that are based on the north side of Markham Vale Enterprise Zone to Junction 29a of the M1 motorway.
