From early beginnings at the height of the Second World War, we have grown into a hub for the UK’s rocketry propulsion technology during the Cold War.Find out more
A big part of the Westcott message is collaboration, with 90 companies based at the Park many doing business with each other. We are committed to building a positive, collaborative eco system which will attract likeminded companies and individuals to develop their ideas.
We take a measured, long-term view in the development of the Park and there has been considerable investment into roads, security, infrastructure and landscaping to create development plots suitable for a wide range of occupiers. This significant investment shows that Westcott brings that long-term view in order to achieve sustainable growth.
Westcott is a place where sustainability is a commitment, and not an aspiration, so it’s perhaps no surprise that we attract a number of tenants who are dedicated to creating a greener and safer world of business. We work hard to protect the green beauty of the park, planting over 10,000 trees, protecting wildlife, encouraging iconic species to thrive. We have plans in place to become the UK’s first carbon-negative business park.
Westcott has a long history of propulsion testing. The site has the unique advantage of being a secure site with an established regulatory and safety regime suitable for testing a wide variety of rocket propulsion systems. This provides companies with the ability to research, then develop and then test new technologies all in one place.
