Fifty staff from Buckingham and Winslow are relocating to the county’s biggest business park as Green Retreats has agreed a five-year lease on 29,000sq ft premises at Westcott Venture Park, between Bicester and Aylesbury.

Managing director Roy Weatherall has ambitious plans for Green Retreats, which designs and manufactures inspirational garden rooms, as seen on Channel 4.

Plans include recruiting up to 40 new staff and doubling turnover within five years.

Mr Weatherall said: “Westcott is the perfect location for our staff and business.

“A big draw for us moving to Westcott, aside from its rural location, proximity for staff and three times the amount of internal space, was in fact the security.

“We have previously experienced problems with attempted and successful robberies, so the 24-hour security protection and nine-mile perimeter security fencing is a big advantage compared to other business parks.”

As a result of the move, Green Retreatswill aim to increase efficiency by up to 20 per cent and reduce waste by five per cent.
