MIRA Technology Park Enterprise Zone

Located in the Leicestershire Borough of Hinckley & Bosworth, MIRA Technology Park is the largest automotive technology park in Europe. It enables businesses engaged in research and development within the transport sector to establish a technical presence in the UK.

The site was allocated Enterprise Zone (EZ) status in 2011 and is the only transport sector focused Enterprise Zone. Already home to a number of world class tenants and household names, such as Bosch, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Haldex and Continental, the site  provides a variety of accommodation options alongside access to a comprehensive proving ground and world class laboratory facilities.

The EZ allocation brings many benefits to MIRA Technology Park clients including:

  • Exemption from business rates (up to £275,000 over 5 years)
  • Simplified planning regulations, facilitation and expedited approval process
  • Access to superfast broadband


What businesses say about locating to an Enterprise Zone:





Mr. Vinod K. Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland Limited said: “Establishing a technical centre in the UK has been an important step in Ashok Leyland’s strategy to realize their vision of being globally among the top 10 truck and top 5 bus manufacturers. The centre, with its access to the facilities and expertise that Horiba MIRA offers, will strengthen the Company’s considerable research and development capabilities to design and develop products that will be on par with evolving European standards. It will also enable Ashok Leyland to draw on the benefits of being based at Europe’s most advanced independent transport technology facility. The centre will be a research hub for Ashok Leyland’s global R&D efforts and will address critical aspects like safety features and homologation for global markets.”

Terry Spall, Commercial Director said: “Being an Enterprise Zone has been a huge benefit and has acted as a catalyst for growth for us.  Our engagement with Government both regionally and nationally has become of paramount importance and allowed us to really accelerate our growth plans, create a hugely attractive inward investment proposition and expedite job creation as we progress the MIRA Technology Park development.”
