Appledore Clean Maritime Innovation Centre announced

Torridge, universities and other partners have joined forces for a funding bid to position Appledore at the heart of global Net Zero maritime ambitions

Torridge Councillors have given their enthusiastic backing and support to a pioneering funding bid, seeking approximately £15m to create the Appledore Clean Maritime Innovation Centre (site behind floating crane barge in picture), a project which will place northern Devon at the core of maritime developments in the Net Zero age, and see the first ever university research centre in northern Devon.
