• Scheme to provide 30,000 sqm of commercial and industrial floor space
  • Completed development forecast to deliver around 1,520 new jobs
  • Site allocated for development in Tewkesbury Borough Council’s emerging Local Plan

Tewkesbury Borough Council today resolved to approve Gloucestershire Airport’s planning application for proposed new commercial development on land between Anson and Meteor business parks – known as CGX Connect.

The Planning Committee members voted today (16 February) to support the plans for CGX Connect, which will generate around 30,000 sqm of gross floor space for commercial-use with potential to deliver around 1,520 new employment opportunities.

Karen Taylor, Gloucestershire Airport’s Managing Director said: “This is great news for the region.  It means we can now plan with confidence on improving the airport and delivering on our programme. We have worked hard with our tenants to ensure they are comfortable with the changes proposed and that this new development will not impact their current operations.

“CGX Connect itself is fantastically linked to the road network and has unique access to connect by air to UK and European destinations for local businesses and existing tenants.

“Gloucestershire Airport is really moving forward and will continue to play an important role in the region’s economic growth.  It is an exciting time for the airport and the region.”
