Sellafield funding brings new business unit to life. A £1.1 million business incubator will be created in west Cumbria to grow a new generation of entrepreneurs. The Watershed, in Whitehaven, will support aspiring business owners to get their ideas off the ground. Sellafield Ltd and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority are providing £996,000 for the project via Sellafield’s social impact budget. It will be part of the Whitehaven Buzz Station scheme, which Sellafield Ltd is supporting with a £2.6 million investment. Both projects are being led by developer BEC and are key to Whitehaven’s North Shore regeneration programme.
