Future Plans

Aviation Business Park

Bournemouth – creating a world class business park

As part of our strategy to create a world-class business park at Bournemouth Airport, Rigby Real Estate submitted three planning applications with the aim of unlocking high-quality employment land and facilitating associated infrastructure.

The aim is to deliver new opportunities whilst providing a major boost for the local economy. Our objective is to appeal to leading national and international manufacturing, logistics and aerospace businesses with a range of high-quality, class-leading units.

With more than one million square feet of new commercial floor space over approximately 75 acres of land, the projected development could contribute £93m every year to the Dorset economy.

36 Acres for Jaguar at Coventry

Jaguar Land Rover purchased 36 acres at Whitley South for new research and development space. This is in addition to the expansion of their powertrain facilities which will see JLR investing over £500 million in the area.
