McLaren have announced plans to build an applied technology centre next to their Formula One factory, a move that could create up to a thousand jobs.

"Up to 300 construction workers will be employed at the site at any one time over the phased development, and 400 direct jobs will be created and retained at the site," McLaren added.

"An additional 200 jobs will be created indirectly through manufacturing, suppliers and clients, and increased retail spend in the area."

At this stage McLaren have submitted a planning application for the centre at Woking.
