Stoford has been given the go ahead to construct a 190,000sq ft purpose-built research and development facility for aerospace group Moog on Wolverhampton’s i54 Business Park.
South Staffordshire Regulatory Committee granted the Birmingham based developers planning permission for the scheme – which includes an additional 50,000sq ft for future expansion – enabling Moog to relocate its flight controls operation from its existing base in nearby Wobaston Road by September 2012.
The move will safeguard around 400 jobs for the region.
Dan Gallagher, Stoford Director said: “This is excellent news and an endorsement of the benefits the strategically located i54 site can offer businesses in the Midlands.”
Steve Holland, of Advantage West Midlands, said: “Months of hard work between i54 partners has paid off, with a first class development attracting a first class, high tech occupier.”
Moog was advised by Birmingham based Fusion Building Consultancy.
