WORK has started on the £2.4 million refurbishment of a Bradford car dealership.
The refurbishment of Farnell Land Rover, based on King’s Road, will see the dealership undergo a complete renovation and extension to feature a nine-car showroom, designed in line with the Jaguar Land Rover Arch concept.
It will create a number of new full-time jobs in the coming years as Land Rover introduce new models to their range. The facility will also incorporate additional electric charging points for the new electric models from both Jaguar and Land Rover. The new retailer will also feature an 11 bay workshop, MOT bay, display space for 50 used cars, additional customer parking spaces, barista bar and air-conditioned showroom.
‘Striking’ upgrade to Land Rover showroom in Bradford approved
Howard Jessop, head of business, said: “This development will meet the 2020 capacities and corporate vision set out by Jaguar Land Rover. The significant investment demonstrates the company’s confidence in Bradford and its economy and will create a flagship facility for customers of the luxury brand.”
