Porton Science Park is currently under development.

The Phase 1 Incubator and Grow On space is funded by Wiltshire Council, the Local Growth Fund via the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and European Regional Development Funding via the European Structural and Investment Fund.  Construction is due to commence in early summer of 2016 and the new incubator and grow on space will open for business in the summer of 2017.  

Outline planning permission exists for an additional 355,000 sq. ft. at the Science Park, which will be suited for larger developments for established companies seeking direct associations with the Porton scientific community in both the health and life sciences, and defence and security technologies.  Overall, 10 Ha at the Science Park are allocated in the Wiltshire Core Strategy for further phases of development.
