New VW motor dealership approved at Matford Green Business Park
Planning consent has been granted for the development of a new 35,000 sq ft state of the art car dealership to represent Volkswagen at Matford Green Business Park in Exeter.
The showroom and workshop will be located at the entrance to the new Business Park, fronting Bad Homburg Way and opposite the Jaguar and BMW showrooms.
It will be the first building on the Business Park, where planning consent exists for up to 500,000 sq ft of employment space and 30,000 sq ft for a public house, restaurant and retail facilities to meet the needs of the substantial employment base of Matford and Marsh Barton.
The Business Park is expected to generate in excess of 2,000 jobs.
Paul Withers of Eagle One commented: “The granting of planning consent is excellent news and we are now progressing with infrastructure works to open up access into the site.
“We have strong interest in other plots from a range of occupiers, in particular from the motor trade sector where operators are keen to secure the high profile opportunities to relocate and upgrade existing dealership facilities.”
Property consultants Alder King and Colliers International are marketing the site.
