In order to further the economic prospects of northern Devon, Devon County Council is bringing forward a new business park on land that it owns at Roundswell, on the outskirts of Barnstaple. This strategic infrastructure project includes the development of a c.2000m2 new Enterprise Centre as the gateway development for which the Council has secured funding from the European Regional Development Fund and the Heart of the South West Local Growth Fund.
The Enterprise Centre will need to be a flexible facility, that can adapt to meet tenants/occupier needs as they become known and change over time. Internet connectivity within the building, to the standard specified, needs to be available from when the Centre becomes operational. On the current programme, that is expected to be Autumn 2020.
