Enterprise Zones

Our eight Enterprise Zones are designated areas across Wales where the Welsh Government has created the best possible conditions for your business to thrive.

The Zones are all focused on particular sectors, so at least one will particularly suit your business. And whether you're looking to start up a new venture or your business is growing, you'll find they offer very compelling business benefits, including:

  • A range of financial incentives including some of the highest levels of grant aid in the UK

  • Enterprise Zones prioritised for Next Generation Broadband

  • Accelerated planning processes

  • Excellent transport links and access to markets

  • Bespoke space

  • Competitive property and salary costs

  • Skilled workforce and commercially-focused academics

  • Private sector-led Zone Boards which directly advise the Welsh Government and Ministers
