A Very Merry Christmas to All
19 Dec 2019
The Oceansgate team would like to take this moment to wish all our tenants, stakeholders, partners and subscribers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We have achieved much more than we expected and wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their ongoing support. Here’s just a few:
- Our Phase 1 development was the winner of RICS Best Regeneration Award in the South West.
- Phase 1 is 90% Let/Under Offer with four of these businesses being new to Plymouth.
- Phase 2 started on site in August 2019, providing a further 2,800 sq m of business space. And is 85% pre-let during 2019, subject to contract.
- The Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC) marine sector innovation support and £110,000 innovation grant programme was officially launched, key test equipment purchased and 325 marine related businesses engaged.
- Smart Sound Plymouth launched in July 2019, providing autonomous buoys and vessels to create a unique In-Sea Test facility in and beyond Plymouth Sound.
- A new sector-blind ‘Meet the Expert’ Business Support and £240,000 Grant programme won. Devon-wide based from Oceansgate to support small business. Starts January 2020 and ends December 2022 (ERDF funded).
Bring on 2020!
