Oswestry Business Park ‘Will Still Happen’

Oswestry Business Park ‘Will Still Happen’

Despite setbacks, plans to build a new Innovation Park on the Oswestry bypass are still on track. This is according to Graham Wynn, chief executive of the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership.

Speaking to the Shropshire Star, he explained that the region needs to focus on its businesses as well as its tourism economy.

“We need to see businesses and industry move into the county and the Innovation Park is key to this. It is strategically placed, an ideal site for businesses,” he told the newspaper.

He stressed that Shropshire Council and the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership want the park to be developed and therefore they are doing all they can to make the scheme a reality.

Mr Wynn acknowledged that there have been some issues, including with getting power to the site, and with access. The issue of energy has been resolved, but negotiations are continuing with Highways England over access, he said.

Once it’s up and running, it’s hoped that the 60-acre Innovation Park will bring a host of new businesses to the Oswestry area. Those involved with planning the site also believe it could bring 1,500 new jobs to the area.

This isn’t the only scheme hoping to bring improvements to Oswestry. Last month, the Shropshire Star reported on efforts to make the town into a Business Improvement District (BID), which would help revitalise the town centre and several other parts of Oswestry.

Improving local infrastructure, as well as regenerating old and derelict buildings in the town, would be among the priorities if it is granted BID status.
