The �2m extension of an enterprise hub in south Norfolk is being tipped for approval tomorrow as part of a scheme to support more start-up businesses.
The 14 units at Hethel Engineering Centre have helped develop 27 innovative companies and created more than 100 highly skilled jobs since it opened three years ago.
Expansion plans for the �4.5m centre of engineering excellence, which is operating at capacity, are being recommended for the green light, which will create an extra 11 'incubator' units.
The proposals by Norfolk County Council will be discussed by its own councillors at a planning committee tomorrow and would help make the centre self-sufficient.

The loss of a middle age oak tree would be compensated for, he added.
