A huge range of new graduate job opportunities in Hampshire could become available if plans to redevelop an area of Andover Airfield are approved.
The land on the Airfield site has been earmarked for mass redevelopment after it was bought by an Australian multi-national company earlier this year, and the new plans have already gained wide local support, reports thisishampshire.net.
The Goodman plans would see the creation of large office, hotel and manufacturing space as part of a £120 million redevelopment which would create up to 2,000 new job opportunities in a wide range of sectors. Also central to the new plans are proposals to make major changes to local transport routes servicing the site.
"The plan includes a proposal for an extra bridge over the A303 which will take traffic in a single direction on each bridge and improve its flow. The improvement will accommodate all proposed development in the area over the next 15 years and beyond," commented Goodman's spokesman Dan Knight.
Local MP Sir George Young, added his support, commenting: "I want to see new jobs on the airfield site which will justify the description of a business park.
"The business park, Andover's last opportunity to generate jobs on a large scale on a site of this size, should attract jobs in IT, research, marketing, financial services and similar professions, consistent with what we all understand by a business park."
