GBSLEP’s investment in the Hoobrook Link Road has made a significant impact on the local economy. The link road has not only improved connectivity across and through the south Kidderminster enterprise zone but has also created 532 jobs and 180 homes. The link road has bought economic prosperity to the area with businesses benefiting form the improved transport links.
Cllr Ian Hardiman, Deputy Leader, Wyre Forest District Council, said:
GBSLEP’s contribution has been critical to the success of the site because without the investment they provided, the link road wouldn’t have happened and therefore, the real success of the site would not have been realised.
