We would like to introduce NEO, the North Essex Opportunity, an innovative, entrepreneurial and burgeoning multi-sector economy

In North Essex data and technology drive an innovative and growing multi-sector economy. The University of Essex and our great local schools mean that a highly skilled, creative and growing workforce is ready to power your business.

Our location between the key UK commercial engines of Cambridge and London and between the Stansted international airport and the ports of Harwich and Felixstowe, make us exceptionally well connected, whatever you’re trading.

With 58,000 new homes, 58,000 new jobs, five distinct and highly desirable new garden communities and more than £3.65 billion of planned spending, we are set to be propelled to become an economic powerhouse.

Welcome to NEO, the North Essex Opportunity.
