MIRA motors ahead with technology park development

Our role

  • We provided the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) with planning advice in relation to the development of the site.
  • This included seeking planning permission for a new MIRA Technology Park which will provide 162,500 sq m of high quality R&D space and create a proposed focus for European R&D operations for global vehicle manufacturers.
  • The application required a parameter-based Environmental Impact Assessment and a consultation strategy.


  • Planning permission was granted in March 2012.
  • The site has subsequently been granted Enterprise Zone status.
  • Turley provided advice in relation to the development of the Catapult building and is currently involved in delivering various aspects of the wider technology park.
