The Westcott Space Cluster is home to a growing nucleus of space related companies developing new innovative technologies, including propulsion, in-orbit servicing, manufacturing, 5G communications and drone technologies and services.
The Westcott Space Cluster is located in the Buckinghamshire Enterprise Zone of the Westcott Venture Park, in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, and home to a growing nucleus of space-related companies developing new innovative technologies in rocket propulsion, 5G communications and in-orbit servicing and manufacturing.
Space is one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors, attracting investment from Government, industry and private equity firms. Westcott alone has attracted over £40 million investment for the UK space sector and is a great example of what can be achieved through the Industrial Strategy.
Reflecting the continued support by Westcott owner, PATRIZIA Hanover Property Unit Trust, with funding from the Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership, we have created six new capabilities in addition to the existing cluster of space companies.
These capabilities will help widen the breadth of space activities, help drive economic growth to the local area and the UK economy, as well as provide new opportunities for highly skilled workers.
