The business, which is headquartered in Berkshire, has been granted permission by Wiltshire Council to develop the site at land on Bradley Road opposite Meridian Business Park.

The scheme has been designed by Bath-based Nash Partnership. Plans for the site, which is set to include a 18,500 sq ft office building, were submitted in June.

Jon Lawes, managing director at Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Services, said: “We are delighted that Wiltshire Council has granted us planning permission for the new site. As outlined in our plans, we intend to create new premises that are both visually attractive to the local area and sensitive to the environment.

“The council was satisfied with our plans and affirmed the economic benefits for Trowbridge that comes with having a global business in the community. These benefits include future recruitment as we commit to jobs for local residents.

“We are confident that the new development with its landscaped setting will improve the views from North Bradley.”

Mel Clinton, associate director of planning and economic regeneration at Nash Partnership, added: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted for this exciting new scheme in Trowbridge.

“Extensive consultation and specialist work was undertaken in progressing the project and the planning decision is a recognition of the benefits the development will bring in terms of economic growth, environmental quality and enhancement of this key gateway to the county town.”

Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions is a division of Hitachi Capital (UK), part of Japanese business Hitachi Ltd.
