Councillors and officers at Fareham Borough Council are celebrating after scooping two prestigious South Coast Property Awards for Daedalus.
The Council won 'Development of the Year' and 'Business Park Innovation of the Year' at the esteemed award ceremony on Thursday at the Ageas Bowl.
The 'Development of the Year' award recognises exciting new developments at Faraday Business Park at Daedalus that match industry standards and add value to the region.
The award for 'Business Park Innovation of the Year' recognises the role Solent Airport at Daedalus plays in the region's economy, celebrating its achievement to create a sustainable environment.
Since taking ownership of the airport in 2015, the Council has invested over £30m in providing industry-leading office and workshop space within the Fareham Innovation Centre as well as bespoke industrial units and 11 new hangars for business and general aviation use, unique to the south coast.
Employment opportunities for local people have also been created by securing around 600 jobs of the 3,500 target for the Solent Enterprise Zone.
Council Leader, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: "We are delighted to win these awards and be recognised for all the hard work that has been done to make such a success of Solent Airport at Daedalus."
Deputy Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Trevor Cartwright, said: "On behalf of everyone at the Council and Solent Airport at Daedalus, it was a great honour to have received these awards at the ceremony."
