Leeds City Region enterprise zone on agenda

aire valley

A DECISION on where the Leeds City Region's enterprise zone is to be located could be decided today when the area's local enterprise partnership board meets to discuss the matter.

Although the Aire Valley is seen as a favourite to be the location of the enterprise zone, there is a possibility that three sites across the city region could become home to the initiative, which could spread across a total of 110 hectares.

A shortlist for the Leeds City Region enterprise zone has not been published but other ideas thought to be considered for it are locations near Bradford and York, and the possibility that it could be based on a specific sector, such as low carbon industry.
