Plans for a 35,000sq ft new Volkswagen dealership in Exeter have been given the green light.
The showroom and workshop, on the Matford Green Business Park, will be opposite the Jaguar and BMW showrooms.
It will be the first building on the business park, where planning consent exists for up to 500,000sq ft of employment space and 30,000sq ft for a public house, restaurant and retail facilities.
The business park is expected to generate more than 2,000 jobs in total.
Eagle One director Paul Withers said: “The granting of planning consent is excellent news and we are now progressing with infrastructure works to open up access into the site.
“We have strong interest in other plots from a range of occupiers, in particular from the motor trade sector where operators are keen to secure the high profile opportunities to relocate and upgrade existing dealership facilities.”
Property consultants Alder King and Colliers International are marketing the site.
