Update on the old BOC building:

Gordon Murray Group are the new owners of the old BOC site and have some exciting plans for its development.

For those who don’t know Gordon Murray, he was the man behind the McLaren F1 road car, which he developed after a very successful Formula One career where he designed the cars that won Constructors Championships and helped some of the greatest drivers to win World Championship titles for both Brabhams and McLaren.

The company bought the Windlesham site earlier this year and have just registered a planning application with SHBC to develop the site to make it their new global headquarters.

This is very exciting news for Windlesham as, not only is Gordon Murray a brand to be very proud of, but they will create employment in the village in what is a very skilled industry. The plan is to commence construction in 2021 with the site occupied by 2023.

The plans can be seen on the Surrey Heath web portal: https://www.surreyheath.gov.uk/residents/planning/planning-applications and then enter 20/0747/FFU in the search field.

The team at Windlesham have set up a series of rule of 6 compliant drop-in sessions every week day between the 7th October and the 22nd October and offer appointments at 8.00-9.00, 12.00-13.00 and 17.00-19.00.

Residents consultations close on 22 October, so we urge you to meet with the team at Windlesham to go through their plans for redevelopment of the site. To book your slot please go to http://gordon-murray-windlesham.eventbrite.com where the bookings opened at 12.00 on 29th September, or alternatively call Katia on 07767 455718 or Richard on 07586 474501.
