Warehouses offer 1,000 jobs hope

PLANNED new warehouses could bring 1,000 jobs to Banbury.

The development by the M40 will go ahead despite a last-minute decision to protect a former First World War munitions station, following a request from Banbury Civic Society.

Cherwell District Council approved the outline scheme, but this is subject to final consultation with English Heritage.

Peter Frampton, the planning consultant for the proposal, said he expected the council to approve it as it would have little impact on the relics.

Councillors were told the scheme could create 1,000 jobs and be open by 2014.

1000 jobs sounds wildly ambitious as most large modern warehouses can operate with very few staff. How many people do the present (huge) warehouses in Banbury employ?
