NEW time lapse footage shows the latest units at Portsmouth City Council's business park rising from their foundations.

The video, available at dunsburypark.co.uk, shows of the new VW Breeze headquarters and a 38,000 sq ft warehouse taking shape at Dunsbury Park – the council's 45-acre business, industrial and distribution facility on junction 3 of the A3(M), in Havant. 

Cllr Ben Dowling, cabinet member for planning, regeneration and economic development, said: ‘We wanted to show in less than one minute how well work is progressing on these buildings and at Dunsbury Park in general.

‘The VW Breeze unit will be completed before next year and we expect to have the other warehouse building finished next spring.

‘Dunsbury Park is becoming a vital asset and it will generate millions of pounds of income for council services and create thousands of local jobs so we're really pleased with how well the construction work is going.’ 

Dunsbury Park is already home to the global headquarters of international clothing brand Fat Face.

It is hoped that when fully occupied the site will create 5,000 jobs across its nine units – one is proposed as a hotel with the rest as a mix of offices and warehouses.

The site is served by a custom-built link road, high-voltage power supply, high speed broadband, gas and water. The site also has conservation habitat areas to preserve wildlife. 

Breeze Motor Group is relocating from its Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Service Centre in Hilsea, Portsmouth, and creating a new 1.3 acre site at Dunsbury Park.
