Bucks LEP is seeing rapid progress in the ten key projects allocated £7.7m of the Governments Getting Building Fund to support economic growth in Bucks. This investment into ‘shovel-ready’ projects in Buckinghamshire is creating hundreds of new jobs and opportunities for training and provide facilities for education and space for new businesses to develop their ideas. One of the nine high-calibre schemes with the capacity to kick-start growth in the county, is the Centre of Excellence for Rocket Engine and Flow Tests Facility. Sam Green, Operations Director at European Astrotech Limited, said: “We are proud to be recipients of Getting Building Funding, which is supporting the establishment of the Centre of Excellence at Westcott. This investment by Bucks LEP will strengthen our competitive advantage and opens up the next stage in the evolution of the Westcott site to attract new business and investment to this world-class centre of excellence in space propulsion.”
