Share your views on the redevelopment of Swindon’s former Honda site

By Anita Jaynes on 25 August, 2021

The project team at Panattoni is inviting the local business community to share its views on the initial proposals for the redevelopment of the former Honda site in Swindon.

Panattoni, the largest developer of new manufacturing, logistics and distribution facilities in Europe, purchased the Honda Swindon Plant in March 2021. The site totals 145 hectares in size and Panattoni is keen to hear from everyone how the site can be improved for all.

In 2019, Honda Motor Company announced a restructuring of its global automobile manufacturing operations, which included the cessation of production at the UK plant in July 2021, at the end of the current model cycle of the Civic Hatchback. Following the closure announcement, Honda committed to leaving the site in a responsible way, with a sustainable legacy for Swindon.

Following the end of production on 30th July 2021, Honda immediately commenced the decommissioning of the site. It is anticipated to be legally handed over in Spring 2022, and once the necessary consents have been obtained, Panattoni will start regeneration and redevelopment.

Since agreeing to acquire the site, Panattoni has focused on working with Honda and Swindon Borough Council and is undertaking significant investigative work on site to prepare the plans for redevelopment.
