INTRODUCTION 
The South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone (FEZ) covers an area of 17 hectares of employment space and is split into two phases. There is also permission for an additional 900 residential units on the north western edge of Holbeach, close to the FEZ. A Local Development Order was adopted on 20th November 2018. It is designed to streamline the planning process by removing the need for developers to make separate planning applications for development within the FEZ. Its main focus is to create bespoke, high quality business space for new businesses and SME’s specifically in the agri-tech sector; with particular emphasis on creating a suitable environment for high tech businesses developing cutting edge technology and innovators. Specialisms we would like to attract include the food supply chain, productivity, food sustainability, logistics and packaging. Facilities will be provided to support these businesses.

LOCATION 
The South Lincolnshire FEZ is positioned to the west of Holbeach in the south of the county and is located at the intersection of the A17/A151. Eight miles from Spalding and 24 miles from Peterborough which provides a direct train route to London in 46 minutes. South Lincolnshire sits at the heart of a global food processing cluster which stretches across Eastern England from Norfolk and Suffolk, through the low lying and productive fens of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire, and into the higher arable heartlands of Lincolnshire and inland into the east midlands. The South Lincolnshire FEZ is ideally positioned in the centre of this cluster, and is rapidly developing the reputation of being the UK’s Food Valley.

SCALE & OPPORTUNITY 
The Agri-food sector combines agriculture, food manufacturing, wholesaling and distribution with a strong focus on underpinning technology. We have an international reputation for food, fish and farming and one of the largest concentrations of food manufacturing, research, storage and distribution in Europe. We are developing a UK Food Valley ecosystem which will bring together the food industry, food supply chain, technology suppliers, government and academia, to position our food cluster as a world class investment location. Greater Lincolnshire is responsible for growing 30% of the nation’s vegetables and producing 18% of the poultry, with a total agricultural output of over £2bn in 2019, representing 12% of England’s total production. This strength in agriculture is replicated in food processing with the UK’s largest fish processing cluster on the Humber, the centre of the UK’s fresh produce industry in South Lincolnshire and major arable, poultry and meat processors (truncated)

WORKFORE, EDUCATION & SKILLS 
The food industry is the fastest growing sector in the UK and employs more than any other sector in the UK, with Greater Lincolnshire employing nearly 30,000 highly qualified individuals in food processing alone. Food is what we do in Greater Lincolnshire and business choosing the Food Enterprise Zone will be able to easily lock into established supply chains, networks, logistisics and proactive support from local partners such as as Lincolnshire County Council, South Holland District Council, Greater Lincolnshire Enterprise Partnership and Team Lincolnshire.
