As Britain’s Ocean City, with its natural harbour and direct deep water access to the English Channel and Atlantic Ocean, Plymouth is ideally located for accessing European and global markets. Our freezone will harness the power of Plymouth’s marine economy to drive economic growth. It will also fund road network improvements that unlock underutilised employment land at Sherford and Langage.

Plymouth, South Hams and Devon councils have formed a partnership to ensure these benefits are fully realised.

We already have a commitment from some of our biggest local employers, Babcock and Princess Yachts, which will help us create over 1,000 new jobs over the first two years.
