City science park is ‘one step closer’
Plans for the flagship building at Exeter Science Park have been approved by East Devon District Council.
Devon County Council, which submitted the planning application for the £7m Science Park Centre, said it will provide a range of accommodation for high growth, science-based organisations. Facilities will include offices, workshops and laboratories, as well as seminar rooms and a cafe.
Meanwhile, a separate planning application submitted by Eagle One, the developer for phase one of the Science Park, has also been approved.
This building will provide 10,000 sq ft of space, with Eagle One occupying one floor and the other available for science and knowledge-based businesses.

Councillor Will Mumford, Devon's cabinet member for economy, enterprise and employment, said: "The first buildings on the Science Park will act as a catalyst for progression despite the challenging economic conditions.
"The creation of this home for hi-tech, knowledge intensive jobs builds on our strategy for future economic growth, the objectives of the Local Enterprise Partnership and the shared vision of the East of Exeter Growth Point. This is a vital step in the delivery of this vision."
