We are working really hard on creating something fantastic!

Be in Science Vale UK - a global hot spot for enterprise and innovation in science, high technology and the application of knowledge.

Relocate your business to one of our Southern Oxfordshire enterprise zones and tap into a world class science community and a breath of fresh air for family life.

Enterprise zones are a government scheme to help businesses move into the growth fast-lane. Businesses that relocate to a designated enterprise zone may qualify for a 100% discount (up to a maximum of £55,000 a year) on their business rates for a period of five years. That’s a saving of up to £275,000 across your first five years. The discounts are fully funded by central government.

In some cases, planning applications in enterprise zones can be simplified by Local Development Orders (LDOs).

Where are our enterprise zones?

Our two enterprise zones are situated to the north and to the south-west of Didcot. Science Vale Oxford comprises two major sites. The largest site is at Harwell and the other site is next to the A34 Milton Interchange, at Milton Park. The Didcot Growth Accelerator Enterprise Zone is located closer to Didcot, roughly in the area around the former Didcot A power station. All sites will have superb road connections and a variety of residential areas nearby.
