Planning applicant Morleys Stores was granted permission for the project from Cherwell District Council in late 2020, and contractors are now on target for completion of the scheme by 1st April 2022.

The development is being constructed to a high specification across two terraces which are capable of occupation as a whole or split into various units from 3,255 – 14,159 sq ft.

The units provide large loading areas with customer parking and 7m eaves height and has prominent road frontage to Launton Road.

Tom Barton of Commercial property expert VSL & Partners, who are marketing the scheme, said: “This is a significant step in Morley Estates development of Launton Trade Park, we have three units currently under offer to national trade operators and strong interest in the remaining space.

“This exciting new development is the first new trade focussed warehouse scheme within Bicester for some 10 years.

“Due to the continued residential growth of the town, we envisage new trade users looking to capitalise on the growth of Bicester along with the relocation of some existing businesses which require better visibility to their local customer base.”
