The site will include a drive-in service reception, 16 car showroom, 18 bay workshop, rooftop parking, customer lounges and a Barista coffee bar.

West Berkshire Council granted the scheme planning permission in March and the site is due to open for business at the end of December 2016. Ninety jobs will be created.

Ridgeway represents Jaguar and Land Rover in Oxfordshire and this development marks the second site build for the group with its Milton Gate, Milton Park facility well underway and on track for an autumn completion.

John O’Hanlon, Ridgeway’s chief executive said: “This is our second Jaguar Land Rover development in the Thames Valley region and represents another step in our growth strategy for the Jaguar Land Rover brand.

“Both brands are in such a strong position and we are delighted to represent Jaguar Land Rover in a new territory that we know very well.

“We are a major employer in the town and this new facility will create 90 additional jobs.”

Jeremy Hicks, UK managing director of Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The Jaguar Land Rover product range is the strongest it’s ever been, with world-class offerings across the line-up. What we’re doing now – and Ridgeway in Oxford is a fantastic example of this – is making sure our showrooms reflect that quality.

“We’ll be rolling out this new corporate identity nationwide throughout 2016 and we can’t wait for our customers to experience it.”
