We have recently submitted a planning application for a new business park as we look to support the county’s ambitions for economic growth during the recovery from Covid-19. The 8.5-hectare park, set to be developed between the existing Anson and Meteor business parks, will create space for around 1,750 new jobs.
“We are really excited to be able to talk about new jobs coming to the area at this crucial time for the recovery of the economy,” said Gloucestershire Airport’s Commercial Finance Director Karen Taylor. “The location is ideally placed for growth with connections by road and air, and we aim for the airport to be a gateway to growth for the many exciting developments happening in Cheltenham and Gloucester.”
Our proposals have received support from GFirst LEP, which has confirmed it will provide £1.885 Million in ‘Growth Deal’ funding to support the infrastructure required to deliver the new development.
Tewkesbury Borough Council has also recommended that the site is allocated for growth in its Local Plan, which is at an advanced stage and awaits approval from the Secretary of State.
