I'm interested what battery expertise Coventry Council and Coventry airport have between them...Coventry Airport could be the site for a 'gigafactory' - a plant to manufacture electric car batteries.
Electric car battery plant plan for Coventry Airport
In some ways I tend to agree, I just don’t like the way these fat cats tend to shove aside others that might be effected by their decisions. I’ve flown up to Coventry quite a few times and generally wouldn’t be able to name any other airfields in that area with the same facilities.Whilst I’m generally against the closure of any active airfield, and there’s some interesting stuff going on at Coventry last time I looked, I suppose that a Gigafactory would bring more economic benefit than a flight training school.
Weren't JLR supposed to be building something off the M54 near Wolverhampton. It was all over the local news before Christmas. TBH I think it was to be an Engine Plant. Complete lack of forward thinking if it was.Jaguar Land Rover have a close relationship with Coventry University. There is even a Jaguar building.
I think it's just gone quiet because there's nothing else to add at present, rather like the proposal for a factory further up the coast at Blyth.Nissan were supposed to be building a new battery factory near their Sunderland plant but not heard anything for weeks. I expect they want someone else to build in , give them the land for free and with no business rates.
