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.
