Newquay Airport could create hundreds of new jobs thanks to a government cash boost.

Enterprise zones like the Aerohub are bidding for sixty million pounds.

Bosses hope plans to build a business park, hangars and a flight training centre will create 750 new posts.

Chris Pomfret, Chair of the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This new fund is intended to bring forward infra-structure projects so that further development can take place more quickly. This should help us to build on the success we have had so far and enable more investors to move to the site, sooner and ultimately create more high value jobs for Cornwall. In particular we will be looking at the potential to accelerate the development of the Aerohub Business Park and associated transport links.”

Two investors have already relocated on the Enterprise Zone, the Classic Air Force opens its doors next month, and Ainscough Wind Energy Services, who intend to expand into the Aerohub Business Park once it is developed.

Miles Carden, Enterprise Zone Manager for Cornwall Development Company, explained “Our Enterprise Zone has already attracted a high quality pipeline of investor enquiries, but this funding would allow infrastructure to be put in place to make the site ‘oven ready’ for businesses to move straight in. Put simply it will allow us to do much more much quicker.”
