Great excitement around the Lowfield Heath business area of Gatwick Airport as renewed rumours persist that a major aviation related computer data storage centre is considering a significant move of most of its functionality (possibly from South Wales) to a secure site near London Gatwick.
The rational being that Gatwick is in the right location, not only for the London major airports but computing services can also profit from future expansion created by Crossrail, Channel Tunnel, HS1, London Freeport and any privately funded runway expansion at Gatwick.
Curiously enough Brexit isn't seen as a core problem by the backers of the expanded venture, as a trade deal is likely to be negotiated between the UK and the USA whatever happens on the European front, and the future currencies of choice are Sterling/US.
Michel Barnier, the EU negotiator, they claim, has simply hardened business attitudes over the future viability of the euro, to an extent that a choice has to be made between the EU and a jurisdiction outside the EU. The formal City offer documents are expected to be released by the end of next week. More as we get it!
