Babergh Mid Suffolk District Council has, on the 3rd of January, resolved to grant planning permission (subject to the completion of a s106 agreement – anticipated by the middle of February 2018) for up to 32 acres (13ha) of business and industrial development along with a family pub and two drive thru restaurants.
StowmarketEAST will provide a mixed-use business environment offering opportunities for office, manufacturing, storage and distribution occupiers. The park is capable of accommodating buildings from 10,000 to 200,000 sq. ft. over the site. The park will be a high quality working environment with extensive landscaping, low site coverage and a range of onsite amenities. Due to the park’s strategic location facing the A14 it is anticipated that it will become home to a variety of national and international companies.
StowmarketEAST is strategically located in close proximity to Junction 50 of the A14 on the eastern edge of Stowmarket – midway between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds. The Port of Felixstowe is 25 miles to the east and Cambridge 45 miles to the west. It is proposed that the site is accessed direct from the A1120 which, in turn, provides a short link to the A14. Stowmarket is a busy market town in Suffolk with a resident population of 15,000, a district population of 87,000 and 234,000 living within 20 km of the town centre.
Building Partnerships Ltd and Carter Jonas LLP have recently submitted an application for outline planning permission for Stowmarket East, part of the wider Stowmarket Business and Enterprise Park. While the formal public consultation period has now ended, we are still interested to hear your views.
