Enterprise Zones

Port EZ

Port of Sunderland has two Enterprise Zones that offer excellent opportunities to companies looking to set up in the region.

Covering a total of 20 acres the two sites - at East Quay and Hendon Sidings will provide level, shovel ready sites that are connected to all utilities including Fibre Optic cable that are then ideal for developers to locate their projects on the port estate in the centre of the multimodal connectivity.

These will offer Enhanced Capital Allowances for businesses investing in plant and machinery to offset 100% of the cost against taxible profits in the year the investment is made.

As well as developing the sites themselves the port have just completed a complete rebuild of the railhead that runs along Endurance Park towards our deep water berth at Corporation Quay and will shortly start work on the main road around the dock estate that will see it replaced, refurbished and realigned to provide a safe throughfare for traffic to the east side of the dock.
