Jaguar's famous former plant to be turned into a business park
19 November 2009

Jaguar’s former Browns Lane site in Coventry is to be turned into a hi-tech business and industrial park.

The firm’s former factory was sold in 2007 to an Australian developer. It now plans to rename it Lyons Park after Sir William Lyons, founder of the Swallow Sidecar Company which evolved into Jaguar.

Browns Lane’s assembly halls were demolished late last year as development work on the site began. All Jaguar production took place at Browns Lane until 1998, and the firm’s wood shop and museum are both still on site.

Work on the site’s infrastructure is expected to be complete by April next year.

someone must tell these entrpreneurs that before they build their 'hi-tech' park thing a minor company called Ericsson has just announced it is quitting its 'hi-tech' park thing at Anstey Park, Coventry. obviously the business to be in is not business but hawking business parks to mug councillors and council tax payers.
