Investment report highlights NLCC as one of region’s top projects

Stoneleigh Park and the National Low Carbon Centre are featured in a major government document which showcases the biggest projects in the region currently available for investment.

The Investment Prospectus for the West Midlands Combined Authority contains more than £8bn worth of projects.

Stoneleigh Park and the NLCC feature as one of the top projects in the region which will deliver jobs, economic growth and boost the country’s global competitiveness.

The prospectus says: “The National Low Carbon Centre will establish Stoneleigh Park as the ‘venue of choice’ for those doing business and/or engaged in R&D and knowledge transfer within the UK low carbon sector.

“Comprising a Low Carbon Enterprise Centre, a university-led Research and Innovation Centre, a Skills and Training Hub and a demonstration events venue, the 5,000sqm new development will provide business workspace, a business incubator, research laboratories, training and demonstration facilities.”

In his foreword to the document, Councillor Bob Sleigh, Chair of the West Midlands Combined Authority, said: “Our region has always been a key economic driver for both the UK and Europe. However becoming a Combined Authority has instilled confidence and encouraged us to be even more ambitious for the region.

“We have already negotiated an unprecedented Devolution Agreement with government, which will result in around £8bn of investment into the region over the next 30 years, delivering the means to finance our ambitions.”
