Enterprise Zone Sites


North Tyneside is home to two new Enterprise Zone sites;  the former Swan Hunter shipyard and the Port of Tyne North Estate, which is the largest single Enterprise  Zone site at 30 hectares. 


The two sites are part of the overall North East Low Carbon and Advanced Manufacturing Enterprise Zone.


The Enterprise Zone is a great incentive for investors, offering:

  • Business rate discounts or enhanced capital allowances
  • A simplified planning regime making development and growth quicker and easier
  • Government support to ensure that superfast broadband is rolled out throughout the Enterprise Zone.

A Centre for Offshore Renewable Engineering (CORE)


The River Tyne North Bank area has also been identified by the government as one of six Centres for Offshore Renewable Engineering (COREs) across the UK. COREs are partnerships between Central and Local Government and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) that ensure businesses looking to invest in manufacturing for the renewables sector get the most comprehensive support possible.


Momentum towards a low carbon economy is accelerating, and the North East is one of the best places to build low carbon businesses in order to compete in the global market. It has the right infrastructure for manufacturing, access to a skilled workforce, an experienced local supply chain and committed local leadership.


The River Tyne itself offers a world class port and extensive development opportunities. It is also at the heart of the largest planned wind farm zone positioned directly off the North East coast, and represents a major opportunity for energy companies, developers, turbine manufacturers and installation specialists.
