Securing a sustainable future for aviation and vital road safety research at Retford Gamston Airport
We are delighted that our Planning Application for a dual-use facility at Retford Gamston Airport has been approved. The development of the site allows us to increase the already significant contribution we make to vehicle and road safety and secure a sustainable future for aviation.
Our investment creates a dual-purpose facility that North Nottinghamshire can be proud of. It gives us a suitable home for the crucial testing and research we carry out to ensure current and future mobility technology is safe, is introduced effectively, and will benefit society. It also secures a future whereby aviation will continue to operate at the site.
We are moving towards a new era of mobility that will embrace electric vehicles, fully automated cars. But the technology that will pave the way for this exciting future must be safe.
The testing and research our world-renowned engineers will conduct within our Safety & Assurance Centre for Connected & Automated Mobility Solutions at Retford Gamston Airport will provide the vital safety assurance, leadership, and strategic direction that’s required for the safe implementation and adoption of new technologies.
Our data-driven insights and risk analytics will not only ensure safe adoption but will also safeguard the UK’s position as a leader in the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) mobility space and drive positive societal change.
Our work will also allow insurers to provide effective mobility insurance, create employment, support the local economy and maintain aviation at the site.
