Norfolk Manufacturing Triangle

Report Segment: Geographic Focus

SEMTA talk of an automotive cluster in the Greater Norwich area and there have been several economic development reports mentioning an “A11 automotive corridor” (see for example Hethel Engineering Centre - HEC Manufacturing Cluster Maps report 2010 and Breckland Spatial Strategy) and the Local Economic Assessment (2010) refers to the A11 having a “concentration of automotive and engineering expertise” (page 28). In addition to this cluster, one can refer to a key triangle of manufacturing ‘hotspots’ based around Greater Norwich – stretching out to Great Yarmouth; the Thetford area; and Kings Lynn.
