UK Enterprise Zone Status for MIRA Technology Park.

MIRA Technology Park was awarded Enterprise Zone status in August 2011 by the UK government and is the only transport sector focused Enterprise Zone in the UK.

Enterprise Zones remove barriers to private sector growth by cutting business taxes, easing planning restrictions and giving businesses the tools they need to invest and expand.

This brings many benefits to MIRA Technology Park clients. Currently these include:

  • Exemption from business rates
  • Simplified planning regulations, facilitation and expedited approval process
  • Access to superfast broadband

These benefits will apply to all businesses established on MIRA Technology Park. In terms of business rates relief, it will apply to businesses resident on MTP by 1st April 2015 and will apply for a period of five years from the date of occupation.
