Grove Business Park joins Advanced Oxford

Advanced Oxford is delighted to welcome Grove Business Park in Wantage as a new sponsor member, who will be actively contributing to our work in supporting the development of Oxfordshire’s innovation ecosystem.

Grove Business Park is owned by The Oxford Endowment Fund and is a thriving commercial environment with over 260,000 sqft (24,150 sqm) of office, warehouse, light industrial, R&D and leisure accommodation. Around 650 people work at the Park and it is home to some 40 different companies and organisations – not including the on-site Boston House Business Centre – which represent a variety of industries and businesses contributing to innovation and impact in their respective fields.

Plans have been submitted to the Vale of White Horse District Council to develop a further 377,000 sqft (c35,000 sqm) of space at Grove Business Park to establish a life sciences, technology and innovation hub at the heart of the Oxfordshire Science Vale. Grove Business Park’s decision to support Advanced Oxford’s work comes as they progress their plans for development and expansion, with the aspiration to grow to around 2,500 people working on the Park.

“Our plans for Grove Business Park are a significant investment to create space for businesses to grow and new job opportunities in the life sciences, innovation and technology sectors, which is a really important resource for the region. We are therefore delighted to support the excellent work of Advanced Oxford in championing the region and look forward to working in collaboration as we look to deliver our vision for the Park.” William Lawrie, Head of Property Management at Oxford University Endowment Management Ltd on behalf of the Oxford Endowment Fund

 “We are pleased to welcome Grove Business Park as a new sponsor member of Advanced Oxford. The long-term investment into the Park from the Oxford Endowment Fund signals a commitment to develop a thriving new hub for science and technology businesses within our region. We are delighted to have the opportunity to involve the Park, and their tenants, in our work to develop Oxfordshire’s innovation ecosystem.” Sarah Haywood, Advanced Oxford’s Managing Director
