More investment at Axis J9 Bicester, with planning application for a potential further 11 new units

More investment at Axis J9 Bicester could see more high-value jobs coming to Bicester, as plans for the final phase of the Axis J9 business park on Middleton Stoney Road are submitted to Cherwell District Council.

Albion Land, the developers of Axis J9 Bicester, is specifically aiming to provide space for dynamic young businesses who want to be in Bicester as well as mid-sized and expanding companies looking for space to grow.

The ambition is to make Axis J9 an even stronger mix of manufacturing, technology and logistics businesses and create a business park that fosters entrepreneurial and commercial success.

Simon Parsons, Director at Albion Land, said: “We’re investing in Axis J9 to create jobs, great quality commercial space and a vibrant commercial culture that benefits Bicester businesses.

“In our third and final phase of development, we very much want to provide units for smaller companies that are seeking to grow.

“Demand outstripped supply for this type of space in phase one, so this is a great opportunity to ensure the next Phase matches with what the market needs and, most importantly, with what Bicester businesses require to succeed and thrive.”

Construction of Axis J9 started in 2019, and 14 business units have been built and successfully occupied.

All of the buildings are zero carbon and, across the development, there is a strong emphasis on the highest standards of sustainability.

To keep local stakeholders and the community updated, Albion Land is issuing a leaflet with details on the phase three proposals and more information about the businesses that have chosen to call Axis J9 home so far.

These include a wide variety of companies operating in industrial, manufacturing and logistics sectors – from Arrival (a pioneering software and electric vehicle manufacturer) to Origin Doors (the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium bi-folding doors and windows).

The next phase of Axis J9 in Bicester has a planning application for a potential further 11 new units.

The application has been submitted to Cherwell District Council and is anticipated to be published on the Council’s planning portal shortly.
