Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans for a £200m redevelopment of its base in Gaydon in Warwickshire.
The site is JLR's design and engineering centre and the plans present the first major construction project at one of the company's non-manufacturing sites in more than a decade.
The company says it hopes to make the site 'the world’s foremost automotive product, engineering and design sites'.
The new design and engineering centre is a testament both to Jaguar Land Rover's British heritage of innovation and its compelling vision for future vehicle technology. The new space will centralise our design, product engineering and purchasing functions in an original and modern environment, as well as creating additional capacity for the future.

The boss of the company says this can only happen if the government helps by freeing up land and improving electricity supplies.
ITV News understands that if this is too difficult to achieve in the UK, the company may look elsewhere.
