Aerospace giant and Bondholder, Rolls-Royce, has been given permission to push ahead with plans to modernise its city operations with a brand new aerospace campus.

Fellow Bondholder Derby City Council has also granted permission to change the existing road infrastructure to facilitate a unified site.

The authority and Rolls-Royce have been working in partnership to secure this new road, which enables the wider campus ambition to move forward
— Martin Rawson, Deputy Leader at Derby City Council

The new campus design is similar to those from the firm's sites in the US and Singapore and further solidifies Rolls-Royce's future in Derby after being chosen as the main production hub for Trent XWB engines back in December.

The new campus is a long-term programme enabling us to work more flexibly, foster innovation and attract and retain the right people
— Rolls-Royce

The positive news comes after a week of securing deals totalling over $2.2 billion with Saudia and International AirFinance Corporation (IAFC), as well as the firm's deal with RwandAir this week.
