Whitehaven’s Buzz Station project is bold.
A safe choice would deliver an office to be occupied by a local nuclear supply-chain firm.
But safety wouldn’t deliver meaningful change. Whitehaven, and its surrounding satellite towns/villages, need radical new employment choices. Kids leaving school and workers made redundant need to understand the wealth of economic opportunities in the digital era.
Sure, it’s not Media City but, when it’s more than an hour to the mainline station and London can be seen as big an adventure as a sunny holiday …. this creative and digital hub will deliver real impact on real lives.
