The former Alcoa Europe site in Banbury is set to become a giant warehouse for toy firm The Entertainer after a planning application was approved by Cherwell District Council last Thursday.

The firm – which has 90 stores across the UK including one in Banbury – is set to move the centre of its distribution operation to the Banbury building, which was the single largest production centre of aircraft aluminium during the Second World War.

Members of Cherwell District Council’s planning committee approved consent for the erection of a new distribution centre with ancillary offices, car parking, service yard and access.
