Jaguar Land Rover plots 350,000 sq ft Halewood extension 

The two-storey facility is required to boost operational efficiency at the car manufacturer’s Knowsley factory. 

The 350,000 sq ft unit would be constructed on a vacant area of hardstanding to the south of Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood facility. 

The proposed building would allow the company to expand storage and production capacity for its Body in White operations. Body in White refers to a stage of car production relating to the welding together of the frame. 

Between 2017 and 2021, a temporary 165,000 sq ft unit stood on the same 4.7-acre plot. However, the permission for this unit has expired and it has been dismantled. 

Jaguar Land Rover has now lodged plans with Knowsley Council for a larger, permanent facility that would be in operation 365 days a year. 

WSP is advising Jaguar Land Rover on planning, sustainability, social value and transport.

They will reverse this. It is looking very ominous for the future of Halewood. Two month lay-off has begun, prioritising JLR West Midlands factories. These kind of shutdowns were happening last year and early this at all car factories. Only at JLR Halewood do these kind of shutdowns at this late stage continue…Be very afraid.

By Carl Foley

JLR in Halewood is a good example of a successful government regional policy: state directed investment sustaining decades of decent jobs and opportunity for local people. The Levelling Up minister would do well to use this as a case study for the future of the programme.

Car production is to cease at Jagurs Castle Bromwich facility so expanding Haleswood would make sense
