2. North Kent Enterprise Zone

One of 26 new or extended Enterprise Zones announced by the Government in November 2015, the North Kent Enterprise Zone (NKEZ) officially opened for business on 1 April 2017.

Enterprise Zones are Government-designated areas in England that offer incentives to business occupiers including business rate discounts worth up to £55,000 annually for five years (a maximum of £275,000 per business).

The zone comprises three schemes – in Ebbsfleet Garden City, Kent Medical Campus, and Rochester Airport Technology Park.

The NKEZ will offer great opportunities for commercial property developers and companies wishing to invest in new business premises as well as from start-up and existing companies looking to locate in the Kent Innovation Corridor.

Gravesham has three sites within Ebbsfleet Garden City, Northfleet East, Northfleet West and Northfleet Rise, located between Ebbsfleet International Station and Gravesend Rail Station with direct HS1 services to London in 22 minutes. These sites are expected to offer around 84,000m2 of commercial and innovation space, with the first coming on stream at Northfleet East where detailed outline plans are with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation for approval.
