A MULTI-MILLION pound expansion of Culham’s science park has been approved tonight. 

The UK Atomic Energy Authority wants to expand its Culham Science Centre, off Abingdon Road, to create 1,000 extra jobs. Currently 2,000 staff work at the site.

Permission to build two extra buildings and keep 13 due for demolition was given by South Oxfordshire District Council officers.

Three planning applications went before councillors at the council chambers in Crowmarsh Gifford tonight.
