Bournemouth Aviation Park

JB Associates have previously worked alongside Rigby Real Estate in their project of expanding the Bournemouth Airport Aviation Park.

Rigby group requested planning permission for this expansion, in which they detail their three main focuses:

  • ‘An outline planning application for employment development in a broad area of land across the northern fringe of the airport. It includes an estate road as the primary means of vehicular access.
  • Full planning application for road improvements and other infrastructure including the access arrangement proposed in the outline application. The road link is considered essential to opening up the site and linking the west and east sides of the business park, currently separated by airside users. It will be implemented quickly as an early phase of the proposed development.
  • A full planning application for an employment unit, allowing for the relocation of a long-standing manufacturing company to the site. This will allow for the retention and expansion of the company’s highly skilled operation while also enabling the release of its former site for alternative residential development.’

The expansion includes a million square foot of new commercial space, as well as ultimately benefiting the surrounding community by potentially providing 1,900 new jobs and a £93 million boost per year for the Dorset economy.

JB Associates were in place as Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors for this project, and we joined Mike Murray, Rigby Real Estate’s Commercial Real Estate Director, in his aim ‘to unlock high quality employment land and facilitate associated infrastructure while providing a major boost for the local economy’.
