Rolls-Royce has submitted an urban planning application to Arun District Council for the change of use of part of its Technology and Logistics Center (TLC) at Newlands Road to a training center with external modifications and a associated landscaping.
The plan has now been approved subject to restricting the use of the training center to the occupant of the rest of the site and for no other purpose.
A design and access statement from David Locke Associates said the Bognor Regis center received planning permission in 2014 and has two warehouse buildings with a service yard between them.
It is currently used primarily to store parts and finished Goodwood vehicles.
“Rolls-Royce now plans to move its global dealer training center from the Goodwood manufacturing plant to TLC as it does not have the space to meet current needs,” the statement said.
In the new training center in Bersted, the staff of the international concession of two large regions would benefit from tailor-made training.
The move would include the replacement of existing offices in one of the units to provide training areas, kitchens, a meeting room and washrooms, minor exterior work, including a new entrance, and the allocation of nine parking for training staff on the current 124.
Trainees would be taken to the center by bus from local hotels.
