The search has begun for a development and investment partner for Cheltenham Borough Council’s planned £400million cyber park and wider housing scheme. Local authorities confirmed plans to develop a Cyber Central into a world-class mixed-use development and make it a global hub to inspire collaboration, growth, research and development. The hub will seat on a 45-hectare land in West Cheltenham recently acquired by local authorities.
Tim Atkins, Cheltenham Borough Council's managing director for place and growth, said: "Cyber Central really is a one-of-a-kind opportunity not only for Cheltenham and the west, but also the UK and we're really excited to begin our search for a development partner.
"With spending in the cyber security market expected to double in the next five years, this is an exciting time for Cheltenham. Cheltenham is already a leader in cyber innovation and Cyber Central will cement that foundation, as we become the cyber tech capital of the UK.
"We want to create somewhere that is one of the best places in the world to design, create, grow and operate an innovative and successful cyber security or technology business."
