An experienced team of landowners and developers – including Muse Developments, Evans of Leeds, Harworth and Wilton Developments – is now working with Leeds City Council to accelerate development of the Enterprise Zone.
Together they are able to deliver high quality expansion, relocation or consolidation solutions to meet the requirements of local, regional and national occupiers, transforming the Leeds City Region enterprise zone into one of the UK’s premier locations for business and investment.
