A £120 million technology park that could create over 5,000 new jobs has been given the green light by planners.
Birmingham-based commercial property developer Stoford has received planning permission to start work on the 90-acre site at junction six of the M5 in Worcestershire.
Worcester Six, previously known as Worcester Technology Park, could provide up to 1.5 million sq ft of accommodation in a range of business units.
Work on local, off-site highway improvements will begin by the middle of this year, having been identified as one of four key regeneration sites by Worcestershire County Council and Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership.
Stoford director Gerard Ludlow said: "It is of course fantastic news that Worcester 6 now has a deliverable planning consent and we are looking forward to making good progress with this important project this year.
"We are confident that the development, which is in a strategically very strong location, will attract high quality occupiers who will bring jobs and investment into the area."
Planning consultancy Barton Willmore submitted the plans and landowner is The Spetchley Estate.
