Phase 2 Ground Breaking Ceremony
30 Sep 2019
Phase 2 of Oceansgate, Plymouth’s new marine Enterprise Zone, will now begin to take shape following a ground breaking ceremony this morning.
Councillor Tudor Evans, Leader of Plymouth City Council, dug the first turf to mark the start of the build.
Oceansgate is a key part of Plymouth’s plans to grow its flourishing marine sector and Phase 2 will see the creation of a new three story office building and 15 light industrial units, potentially creating up to 130 new jobs.
“The fact that 84 per cent of Phase 2 is under offer before it has even been built shows there’s a real appetite for this new facility, which is perfectly located being close to some of the biggest businesses in the city – such as Babcock and Princess Yachts.
“We’re pushing ahead with our plans to support and develop Plymouth’s marine and maritime economy, attracting new businesses and supporting the growth of those already based here, which will pay dividends for the local economy. Oceansgate has a very big role to play in this.”
