Representation Summary:


We support the strategic objectives and particularly the desire to create a vibrant, prosperous and inclusive new village. Embodied within this objective the SPD seeks to secure opportunities for local employment and entrepreneurship.

Although the redevelopment of the existing employment site will deliver jobs located at the heart of a proposed new village, and is therefore well placed to fulfil the strategy's objectives of providing access to jobs within each reach of homes, Aitchison Development's vision and objective for the site go beyond local employment opportunities.

We are seeking to deliver a successful high tech business park comprising B1c and B8 uses that will become an asset to the local economy, attracting investment and local employers to the area, such that it could itself be identified as a Strategic Employment Location in the future.
