Business Park land bought by developer

By Jo Deeks on Thursday, 31st January 2002.

Leading developer Carisbrooke has brought the last major employment site in Haverhill, the 64 acres Helions Business Park.

The site, which straddles the Suffolk/Essex border off the A1037, will be renamed Haverhill Business Park and has potential for 9,290 sq metres of mixed land use development.

Its previous owners had submitted an outline planning application for a roadside restaurant, petrol filing station, hotel, offices and industrial space.

The new owners hope to get planning consent within the next four weeks and are also negotiating a package of planning benefits for the local community including a traffic management scheme, landscaping, cycle route and a wild grassland area.

Nic Rumsey, a director at Carisbrooke, said they were extremely positive about the long-term prospects for East Anglia and believed the Cambridge Phenomenon was now spreading through neighbouring towns.

“We believe that there is a strong demand for space in Haverhill where industrial, housing and employment costs are significantly lower than in the immediate vicinity of Cambridge,” Mr Rumsey said.

Carisbrooke is one of the bets know developers around Cambridge and has already launched the Cambridge Research Park at Waterbeach and another business park at Swavesey.

Carisbooke has acquired the site with its joint venture partner Suon, from 3i Commercial Properties and Wrenbridge,
