Plans to sell off part of BAE in Brough

Union bosses have cautiously welcomed plans to sell part of the BAE Systems plant in Brough to an investor. It could mean more jobs in the area.

BAE Systems has entered into a development partnership with Bridgehouse in relation to a number of sites across the UK including Brough. The agreement to purchase land and facilities on the Brough site, will see both parties work together to deliver redevelopment plans - including delivering local employment and economic benefits.

This strategic real estate partnership blends BAE Systems Real Estate Solutions 20 years’ experience of delivering transformation projects for the Company with Bridgehouse’s extensive global commercial real estate development and regeneration experience.

They added:

BAE Systems is committed to maintaining a long term presence at Brough and we will continue to support the Humber Enterprise partnership in attracting other companies to the Brough Enterprise Zone in order to help stimulate economic growth and employment within the area. The partnership with Bridgehouse, who bring further development and regeneration expertise, will enhance our ability to implement these plans.
