🚀 Innovative Transformation Journey:
The Heath Business and Technical Park has been a successful venture since its acquisition by SOG Ltd in 2000. However, challenges such as aging infrastructure, energy inefficiency, and funding gaps necessitate a forward-looking approach. Heath Park is the catalyst—a privately funded initiative to future-proof the site for generations to come.
