The Plymouth and South West Peninsula City Deal
The Plymouth and South West Peninsula City Deal is a pioneering programme covering Cornwall, Devon, Plymouth, Torbay and Somerset. Designed to bring significant and long-lasting economic growth to the far south west, the City Deal aims to create over 9,000 jobs over the next fifteen years.
The City Deal has three distinct elements - the Marine Industries Production Campus, the Growth Hub and the Youth Deal. Recognising that the economic challenges facing the peninsula need to be tackled locally, each has been created to address specific needs- to better exploit our marine assets, support business and tackle youth unemployment.
Transforming Plymouth's South Yard
South Yard is part of the HM Naval Base located in Devonport Dockyard Plymouth. From April 2015, key areas of South Yard will be transferred from the Ministry of Defence to Plymouth City Council, bringing a unique complex of industrial buildings and docks into commercial use and offering an exceptional investment opportunity in a prime marine location.
