Science Park for Swindon

A planning application that will create at least 600 additional jobs in Swindon has been submitted to Swindon Borough Council. The proposals by Wasdell

Properties for the high-quality, sustainable Swindon Science Park will deliver much-needed facilities for R&D and high-tech manufacturing. Wasdell is Europe’s largest

independent manufacturing and packaging supplier to the pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare industries. The proposed site is at Inlands Farm, Wanborough. Speaking about the

planning application, CEO Martin Tedham said: “With the national research councils on our doorstep, and Heathrow less than an hour away, Swindon is perfectly placed to grow its hi-tech, science- based industries. I am confident that Swindon will rise to this challenge and prove itself to be a leader in this field, and that Swindon Science Park can play a major part in this.”

New panel address the night life challenges in city centre

A collective voice representing Bristol’s diverse night-time economy will be heard through the newly founded Bristol @ Night advisory panel. Chaired by Head of Bristol

Corporate SME at Bristol law firm Gregg Latchams Marti Burgess (pictured), the Bristol @ Night advisory has launched to bring together local people who work across the city’s unique and inclusive night life. As more people choose to live

centrally, the new panel will work to address some of the key challenges Bristol is facing as it grows to ensure the vitality and diversity of night-time activities are not only preserved, but also supported to expand and flourish. The panel launch at City Hall saw

speakers from across the industry contributing their views and experiences, and community representatives were able to share their priorities and discuss recommendations for maintaining Bristol’s economic and cultural fabric, formed by night-time business and leisure activity.

Marti, a solicitor

who has been involved in the Bristol’s night-time economy since the early 90s, said: “I see this panel as an important step to ensuring that those of us working within Bristol night time economy are heard when big decisions are being made.” Cllr Nicola Beech, cabinet

member for Spatial Planning and City Design at Bristol City Council, introduced the new initiative, which is independent from the

council but its members will be empowered to feed into

existing policies and strategies. Cllr Beech said: “We are

already taking positive steps forward as we review the council’s Local Plan and introduce the ‘agent of change’ principle, incorporating a new responsibility for addressing the impact of noise on developers.”
