Sheffield City Region is rated the number 1 Enterprise Zone for Modern Manufacturing and Technology in the UK by the Financial Times fDi magazine. Our strength lies in advanced manufacturing and materials, feeding into global markets.

We are home to the UK’s leading Enterprise Zone which hosts advanced manufacturing, engineering and technology, with sites in seven of our local authority areas, including Doncaster Sheffield Airport and Markham Vale Business and industrial Park.

The Enterprise Zones across the city region have attracted new businesses and encouraged new commercial developments.

We’re committed to help unlock growth on our enterprise zones, which is why we have put in place an Enterprise Zone Accelerator Fund to help unlock further commercial development. This sits alongside a great package of support and incentives to help investors maximise the game changing opportunities available in the Enterprise Zone.

Benefits include:

  • 100% Enhanced Capital Allowances for sites suitable for major capital investment for plant and machinery on selected sites
  • Business Rate Relief on selected sites
  • Simplified fast track planning
  • Superfast Broadband
  • Support every step of the way from our dedicated Inward Investment team
