A Blue-Green Beacon

Montrose ZeroFour is an ambitious, purpose-built innovation park where sound environmental strategy and modern facilities combine.



A Step Forward.

ZeroFour is an enterprise hub under development by Crown Estate Scotland. Located at Montrose on Scotland’s north east coast, ZeroFour aims to become a national hub to support the development of clean enterprise with a particular focus on the blue (marine-based) and green economies including offshore wind.


The purpose-built innovation park will offer high quality flexible spaces with innovative, energy efficient design.


It will provide greener space for traditional enterprises and be a home to organisations offering new services, technology and research and development. ZeroFour hopes to be a catalyst in advancing clean, green economic growth the region, benefiting the rest of the country and sharing the positive outputs with partners around the world.


ZeroFour will bring significant investment

to north east Scotland, creating a green

economic boost, generating hundreds of

new jobs, and training opportunities with

organisations seeking a modern environmentally

sound foothold in a beautiful part of Scotland.

ZeroFour, a former RAF airfield, will be developed by Crown Estate Scotland into a 50 hectare modern, environmentally sound hub.


The vision for the hub


  • To deliver the best viable quality of space, design and sustainability
  • The ZeroFour hub will be environmentally sound, energy-efficient and visually attractive with future-proofed technological infrastructure
  • To promote the site as a hub for the blue and green economies, particularly the offshore wind operators, supply chain and support services.
  • ZeroFour will also support expansion to multiple sectors helping businesses and communities to thrive. Preference will be given to: 
    • Clean green growth
    • Organisations providing good levels of employment and training
    • Those creating research and development opportunities


The hub will be serviced by clean energy and infrastructure thanks to the shared ambition of Angus Council and Crown Estate Scotland.  ZeroFour has the potential to be one of the leading examples of green energy use anywhere in the UK.


Crown Estate Scotland is working in partnership with Dundee and Angus College and Angus Council to deliver a greater diversity of employment and training options for the area by including a tech hub at ZeroFour - which will include Scotland’s first commercial drone port – alongside space to support growth of local enterprise.


The hub will be designed to be sympathetic to its special natural surroundings, noting its historical significance as a former airfield, and grow to become a highly valued and accessible asset to the community.

ZeroFour has planning permission in principle for a mixed-use business park (planning classes 4, 5 & 6) to which Crown Estate Scotland will explore adding amenity space, including a training hotel, and potentially a bio-fuel/hydrogen/electric fuel station.


Crown Estate Scotland has the means to deliver the infrastructure and landscaping to allow serviced plots to be acquired or leased.


  • Multi-use office space
  • Large scale industrial/warehousing
  • Start-up units
  • R&D space
  • Small & midsize units
  • Trade and other local economy catalysts

ZeroFour offers businesses a new, clean opportunity to position themselves adjacent to stunning beaches and woodland on the northern edge of Montrose, in Angus. Angus is an area of natural beauty with a skilled workforce, ample housing land, with great connections to north east and central Scotland. Montrose Port is one of the closest to the expanding offshore wind fields in the North Sea. 


ZeroFour’s position two miles from Montrose Port, 12 miles to the nearest offshore wind fields and 35 miles from Aberdeen and Dundee makes it ideally located to support the expanding offshore renewables sector, associated supply chain industry, and individuals transitioning to green engineering jobs.


Crown Estate Scotland has formal relationships with Angus Council and Dundee and Angus College to support and fund the development of ZeroFour and delivery of our shared vision for place and opportunities.


A new home for innovative industry

Ideally located midway between Aberdeen and Dundee and their highly skilled workforces, ZeroFour is well-positioned to support a diversity of STEM-related employment and industry, with Montrose particularly well-positioned to support the offshore wind sector.
