Plans have been submitted for a new business park on land at London Oxford Airport.

Oxford Aviation Services (OAS) has applied to Cherwell District Council to develop a 3.31-hectare section of its land for five new buildings totalling 18,620 sq m, which could be divided into a total of up to 17 units for R&D and warehouse use.

The site, which is in the Green Belt, directly opposite the under-construction Oxford Technology Park, is currently home to some vacant former MoD buildings and some cleared space. The existing accommodation totals 5,159 sq m.

OAS is seeking to intensify use on the site while helping address the demand for lab and R&D space.

The team on the project includes Avison Young on planning, Spratley & Partners on architecture and Lichfields as market and economics consultant.
