As part of the simplified planning framework for the Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Newquay Cornwall Airport, Cornwall Council now have a Local Development Order.

The principle of developing the Local Development Order site was first consulted upon in 2008 as part of the now adopted Newquay Cornwall Airport Masterplan 2008-2030.

The site also forms an integral part of the successful bid by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership to establish the Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Newquay Cornwall Airport.

The purpose of the Order is to simplify the planning framework within the Enterprise Zone which provides one of the most investment friendly areas in the UK. Planning freedom is a key incentive to attract investment and new growing business to Aerohub.

Further information on Enterprise Zones can be found on the Enterprise Zones website.
