Enterprise Zones (EZs) are designated areas that create local economic growth by supporting businesses to grow.

Currently, the Government has no plans to extend or create new EZs. However, the Government remains committed to creating up to ten new innovative Freeports across the UK, to level up the country and make sure businesses and communities benefit from the opportunities of leaving the EU. The consultation concludes on the 13th July, after which the Government will make further announcements.
