Answer for Sustainable Industries Park

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The infrastructure for the London Sustainable Industries Park (LSIP) (roads, utilities and landscaping to create developable plots) is expected to complete by April 2013 and future occupiers are expected to build out their facilities over the next 3 to 5 years. Once fully developed the LSIP is expected to attract up to 750 jobs (these may include temporary, permanent and supply chain jobs) with up to 500 construction jobs anticipated during the construction phase. The LSIP will also attract significant levels of private sector investment into London's economy and divert hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill each year.
