In April 2016 the creation of Didcot Garden Town was confirmed and the 55 acre site bounding the A4130 was granted Enterprise Zone Status by the government following a submission by the Vale of White Horse District Council. Reef and the Vale of White Horse then agreed to work in partnership to create a Local Development Order for the site to create a new technology and science district on the edge of Didcot benefiting from being in close proximity to Didcot Parkway Station, the A4130, the residential housing of Didcot and the town centre.

Reef and the Vale of White Horse are drawing on the fantastic location in South Oxfordshire benefiting from being close to Oxford, Reading and London with excellent connectivity whilst having all the amenity of the Oxfordshire Countryside and the River Thames close by.

The proposals are to create a new 880,000 sq ft development providing high tech office, laboratory, manufacturing, and production facilities targeting disruptive technology.  DISC (Disruptive Innovation in Space Centre) has agreed to take 80,000 sq ft of conference, office, laboratory and research space targeting collaborative working between companies in the disruptive technology sector.  Reef are in dialogue with other occupiers to take pre-lets with available units range from 5,000- 300,000 sq ft.  The collaborative approach to disruptive innovation is targeting sectors include space, energy, robotics and automation.

D-tech’s role within the Didcot Garden Town vision is create an environment for people to work, live, play and ultimately thrive.
