Infinity Park Derby Offically Launched!

Infinity Park Derby was officially launched today by Chairman of the Conservative Party, Patrick McLoughlin MP and Councillor Ranjit Banwait, Leader of Derby City Council.

Councillor Ranjit Banwait, said:

"I look forward to seeing Infinity Park evolve into a first-class, hi-tech hub for the automotive, rail and aerospace industries. It is a development that will reverberate for many years to come, providing work for thousands of people."

Also speaking was Colin Smith CBE, Group President of Rolls-Royce plc.

A joint collaboration development involving Wilson Bowden Developments, Infinity Park Derby is a 100-acre development being built next to Rolls-Royce's civil aerospace site on land between Sinfin and Chellaston.

At the launch ceremony for the 2.4km Infinity Park Way, which joins the A50 Junction 3 at Chellaston Island and Wilmore Road, guests undertook an inaugural drive in the iconic Derby-built Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai.

Peter Gadsby, Infinity Park Partnership member, commented:

"Infinity Park will herald a new era for the south side of the city. In short, with the road open, we are open for business."

The project has received funding from the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) and D2N2 LEP, as well as significant investment from Derby City Council, Wilson Bowden, Cedar House Investments and Peveril Securities.

The Government has awarded Infinity Park Derby Enterprise Zone status and has included the site in its Midlands Engine pitchbook which is being taken to international investors.

The first building to open on the park will be the £11.8 million 45,000 sq ft iHub later this summer.
