East Devon District Council has granted outline planning permission for Exeter Science Park and also issued the outline planning permission for Flybe's state-of-the-art training academy.

Both of these developments are major components of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point and together form part of a package for growth that will not only offer skilled job opportunities but also provide essential links between industry and education establishments in the South West.

Cllr Ray Franklin, EDDC's Portfolio Holder for Strategic Planning and Regeneration, said: "These developments are absolutely fundamental for skills development in the area. We have known for some time that there is a real need to address the skills gap and providing direct links between education and industry will undoubtedly help to improve the skills of the current work force.

Both Exeter Science Park and the Flybe Training Academy will be shining examples of this principle at work.
