To ask Her Majesty's Government who set the boundaries of the enterprise zone in Great Yarmouth; and which people or organisations were consulted beforehand.

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many jobs are forecast to be created by the Great Yarmouth enterprise zone by 2015; and how many of those will result from businesses which committed to moving into the proposed zone before it was established.

The boundaries of the enterprise zone sites in Great Yarmouth were set by the New Anglia local enterprise partnership. The local enterprise partnership consulted local land owners and local communities in setting these boundaries. These boundaries have been confirmed by the Government in awarding enterprise zone status for Great Yarmouth.

The New Anglia local enterprise partnership has estimated that the enterprise zone sites in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft could create approximately 1,380 jobs by 2015. This estimate is in addition to jobs that would have been created in the zone anyway.
