The Food Enterprise Zone (FEZ) provides the District Council and County Council the opportunity to promote a Land Development Order on land adjacent to A17 at Holbeach. This designated area forms part of a greater strategy both to implement employment and residential zones in this area, unlocked by the proposed infrastructure of the Peppermint Junction Highways Programme.

 

This research and development area identified for economic investment and growth aims deliver the provision of infrastructure to individual plots readily accessible to businesses, widening the appeal of the FEZ to the entrepreneurial, high-tech food businesses which it seeks to attract to secure inward investment, growth and success of Greater Lincolnshire’s Agrifood sector. As the FEZ grows it is intended that there will be opportunity to expand in to neighbouring land and will grow its provision for a variety of enterprises, notably the SME business community.
