Haverhill Business Park Promises 'Earth Will Move'
Friday, 16th February 2007.
Planning permission has been granted for major earthworks on the Suffolk side of Haverhill Business Park...
The works, which mark phase two of the business parks’ development, will provide a level platform for large scale future development, and Carisbrooke, the developer of the business park is already receiving enquiries from potential occupiers keen to join the likes of Percy Dalton’s famous peanut company, Terence Barker, Buildbase builders merchants and HID.
Nic Rumsey, director at Carisbrooke, said: "The area that is going to be levelled out is massive, the equivalent to sixteen football pitches. It has the potential for 550,000 sq ft of new industrial, warehousing, offices and research and development.
"This will provide Haverhill with the capability to house some major new occupiers wanting warehousing or industrial facilities on the park. The work is expected to start in the summer and is expected to take nine months to complete."
Letting agents for the site are Cambridge based Carter Jonas and London based Rumsey & Partners.
Haverhill Business Park has the potential for 1m sq ft (92,902 sq m) of mixed-use development. Facilities on the park also include a Days Inn hotel and the Haver Arms pub.
