Haverhill Business Park Submits Planning Application
Saturday, 25th November 2006.
Carisbrooke, the developer of the Haverhill Business Park, has submitted a planning application to build a 37,000 sq ft unit for HID Corporation, the premier manufacturer of contactless access control cards and readers for the security industry, on the Haverhill Business Park, Haverhill.
The single unit will comprise approximately 15,000 sq ft of air-conditioned offices and 22,000 sq ft of production and warehousing space; it will be completed and ready for occupation by late 2007.
David Sullivan Managing Director of HID said: “HID Corporation is relocating from its current office on Homefield Road, Haverhill, to the Haverhill Business Park due to the company’s rapid growth. It is an exciting time for HID, we have seen the company grow by 10% this year and the projection for 2007 is that we will grow by a further 16%. We chose to relocate to the Haverhill Business Park because of the high standard of environment and facilities on offer; our new facility will allow us to accommodate our growing team in purpose built, modern offices.
Nic Rumsey of Carisbrooke, the developer of the Haverhill Business Park, said: “Its great news that HID are coming to the business park, the park is really taking shape; the Days Inn Hotel, which is due to open at the end of the year, will have conferencing facilities and meeting rooms for hire. And the pub, also due to open at the end of the year, will provide a convenient place to enjoy lunch and socialise after work.”
Haverhill Business Park straddles the Suffolk and Essex border and has the potential for 92,902 square metres (1 million square feet) of mixed-use development including industrial warehousing, offices and research and development.
Letting agent for the site are Cambridge based Carter Jonas and London based Rumsey & Partners.
