Hethel Engineering Centre is located along the A11 Technology Corridor, a concentration of technology businesses that stretches from Norwich to Cambridge along the A11 road. Norfolk plays host to a number of key industry sectors, many of which are of national importance, including the energy hub on the east coast, advanced engineering, and manufacturing, together with world-class food, life-science and agri-tech expertise and a fast growing digital creative cluster.
These sectors present attractive investment opportunities: plenty of space for businesses to start up and grow; quality, cost-effective, commercial property compared to London and the South East; as well as lower than average operating, property and living costs. All of which is underpinned by a comprehensive business support framework, vibrant business and sector networks and a stable skills base.
There are targets to generate 57,000 more jobs, 5,300 new businesses and 73,000 more homes by 2026 supported by the City Deal with the Government which will contribute significantly to achieving these plans.
