A planning application has been submitted for 2.45m sq ft of business, warehouse and industrial space at the Gateway 14 site in Stowmarket, Suffolk, adjacent to Junction 50 of the A14 that will bring hundreds of jobs to the town.
This follows a public consultation exercise last Autumn and is a hybrid-application comprising details for infrastructure and landscaping and outline for the plots.
The indicative masterplan shows a sample layout for 2.45m sq ft of buildings. The park will deliver a range of opportunities for occupiers.
New facilities will be available on a bespoke or speculative basis making it the ideal location for R&D, logistics and manufacturing users.
The mixed-use park will comprise high-specification space for a wide range of uses, with potential to build E(g), B2 and B8 units. It will have the benefit of on-site and local amenities and will also provide access to a strong local and regional labour pool.
Designed to meet today’s business needs while preparing for the future, the scheme will feature high-quality landscaping meeting the requirement for a biodiversity net gain of 10%.
There will be an enhanced biodiversity zone, to retain the site’s thriving ecology whilst creating a vibrant, attractive, and healthy working environment for employees.
Gateway 14 is a development by Gateway 14 Ltd (wholly owned by Mid Suffolk District Council) and Jaynic that has a strong track record of implementing infrastructure and delivering high quality business and logistics parks on a speculative and bespoke basis in the East Anglian region.
Jaynic is hoping to appoint contractors to go on site in June upon grant of planning consent to construct the estate road infrastructure, services and landscaping. It could be delivering buildings by the first quarter of 2022.
