Tyseley Environmental Enterprise District Information Exchange Event
Date(s) - 25/03/2014
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tyseley Environmental Enterprise District is one of six Economic Zones launched as part of Birmingham City Council’s Economic Zones Prospectus in September 2012. The Prospectus promotes Tyseley as a ‘location of choice’ for local and inward investment in the resource recovery sector and in emerging energy-from-waste and related technologies.
Over the past three years, the Tyseley Property Assistance Programme has successfully encouraged small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in the area to undertake site improvement works or new-build development projects. The grant scheme, for which funding is provided from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), provides a 50% contribution up to a maximum of £100,000 towards development costs. Further ERDF and other European funding to assist SMEs is now available.
Supporting new development, investment and innovation in the area, the Tyseley Information Exchange series of events encourages best practice in the manufacturing and resource recovery sector to be shared and for industry experts to meet site owners, practitioners, agents and other stakeholders.
