Mayor Welcomes Extension of Haven Waterway Enterprize Zone

The announcement by Edwina Hart AM Minister for the Economy that the Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone (created in 2012) will be extended to include Brunel Quay, Neyland has been warmly welcomed by the Town mayor Councillor Simon Hancock. He said ‘we need to encourage small and medium-sized businesses during these challenging times. Being able to offset business rates for up to two years will be a palpable boost for them. ‘Last year I wrote to the Board urging them to include Brunel Quay but they declined to accept my proposal. Clearly the very sad news about MURCO refinery has made them think again.’
