Old buildings on the site are have been demolished.

Gyron Internet is one of the town’s biggest success stories, providing the electronic storage space for internet data. Its clients include Spotify.

The application was welcomed by Andy Cook, chairman of the Maylands Partnership, who said it was just the kind of development the area needed.
