Bicester Motion receives outline planning permission for The Innovation Quarter

The Innovation Quarter sets out the next chapter for the former RAF aerodrome, spearheading Bicester Motion’s plans to establish a world-leading Centre of Excellence for automotive engineering, past, present and future.

The Innovation Quarter will become home to leading international engineering and technology businesses; it will inspire and excite the next generation creating skilled apprenticeship and employment opportunities in the local area and beyond. It will also provide Bicester with international exposure as a leading knowledge, innovation and technology hub.

The proposal will capitalise on the site’s internationally recognised business community and event success, its excellent location and connectivity to the Oxfordshire Science and Technology clusters as well a central location within the OX-CAM Arch.

It will contribute significantly to the economy supporting growth in demand for local services assisting economic growth and employment directly and indirectly and will further promote Bicester as a hub for innovation and technology.
