Great news that we have secured an Enterprise Zone for Rotherwas. Herefordshire has a significant opportunity that we must not squander. I ‘ve spoken with many in business since the announcement. There is a concern that others will benefit from the incentives of the Enterprise Zone that are not open to them because of the the relocation issues. There are concerns that competitors will be imported. No one though is talking about the possibility of new clients being brought to the County or that the Hereford Enterprise Zone will put the County on the business and investment map.
Maybe all the bad dreams will come true, maybe they won’t. What we need is an understanding of what’s happening now and what happens next. Gary Woodman and the team will make sure that all Chamber members remain briefed.
