City of Doncaster Council has announced the location for the production facility of the helium-filled airship, Airlander 10, in a deal set to create 1,200 jobs.

The council and Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd have agreed to locate the production programme for Airlander 10 at Carcroft Common.

It is estimated the plans will create a £1bn per annum export business, over 1,200 green jobs and new supply chains within the South Yorkshire Investment Zone.

Ros Jones CBE, Mayor of Doncaster, said: ‘The Heads of Terms agreed are the culmination of years’ worth of lobbying, planning and collaboration that I am incredibly pleased to see coming to fruition.

‘Hybrid Air Vehicles in Doncaster is truly an exciting opportunity, bringing high skilled and well-paid jobs to Doncaster.’

Oliver Coppard, Mayor of South Yorkshire, said: ‘Following on from our significant commitment to developing South Yorkshire Airport City just last month, we are increasingly putting Doncaster at the cutting edge of sustainable aviation research and manufacturing.

‘Hybrid Air Vehicles are an important part of that vision, and I look forward to working with them as they move through the planning process.’
