Devon County Council (DCC)
DCC is a shareholder of Exeter Science Park Limited, ESPL, and has managed the £19M of grant funding provided by the former South West RDA. This enabled the purchase of the 64 acre (25ha) site and the development of substantial infrastructure such as major improvements to the M5 Junction 29, necessary to unlock the potential of the wider Growth Point area.
In addition DCC secured Community Infrastructure Funding (CIF) of £5M to develop a sustainable transport infrastructure for the area and to provide access routes into the city centre. This includes the construction of the iconic blue Redhayes Bridge for cyclists and pedestrians to cross the M5 directly into the Science Park and for the roads and transport infrastructure for the northern section of the Science Park.

The HCA has been the custodian of Regional Development Agency (RDA) funded assets since the RDA was closed in 2012.
The South West RDA provided grant funding of £19M to Devon County Council to purchase the 64 acre (25ha) site and to develop infrastructure for the Science Park. The HCA continues to be closely involved with the project by providing loan funding and working closely with the board.
The Met Office started as a shareholder when the company was formed in 2010 but was required to divest its shares as it came under the control of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS). The Met Office continues to be an active partner & supporter of the project and works closely with the Board of Directors.
