The three sites are located at Copdock, Martlesham Heath and Lound:
Located within the Ipswich Park and Ride facility adjoining the A12/A14 dual carriageway intersection to the south west of Ipswich. Traffic daily flow in this location is understood to be in excess of 55,000, making it one of the most strategic transport locations in the county. The site adjoins a large Tesco supermarket and the Interchange Retail Park and is accessed via the A1214 (London Road) which provides access to Ipswich town centre, approximately 2.6 miles to the north east.
Located within the Martlesham Park and Ride on the A12/A1214 intersection to the east of Ipswich and again a highly strategic location, being on the principal A12 corridor serving the east Suffolk coast. Suffolk Constabulary's Headquarters is directly opposite the site, with Martlesham Heath Business and Retail Parks and housing estate, together with Adastral Park, home to BT's innovation labs and Innovation Martlesham, are all located directly to the south. The A1214 (Main Road) is one of the principal arterial routes into Ipswich town centre, approximately 5.1 miles to the west.
Located on the junction between the A47 (Yarmouth Road) and Jay Lane and currently forming part of an agricultural holding. Hopton village is immediately to the east, with Great Yarmouth about 5 miles to the north and Lowestoft about 5 miles to the south. The A47 carries a high volume of traffic between the two towns which increases significantly during the tourist season.
The site currently forms part of the Ipswich Park and Ride and is located to the north west of the facilities buildings. A site area of up to 2,144 sq m (0.53 acres) can be allocated. The site has a tarmacadam surface with a slight gradient.
The site currently forms part of the Martlesham Park and Ride located to the south of the facilities building. A total of up to 1,687 sq m (0.42 acres) is available and as shown hatched blue on the site plan for identification purposes only. The site is surfaced with brick paviours and has a slight gradient.
The facilities buildings at both Copdock and Martlesham are potentially available within the proposed leases, for ancillary uses relating to electric vehicle charging and subject to access to the toilets and waiting areas being retained for users of the Park and Ride facilities.
The site forms part of an agricultural holding and up to 1,500 sq m (0.37 acres) is available.
Note : The final area of each site to be let will reflect that required to accommodate the proposed development and may be smaller than those referred to above.
Further details of existing electricity supply infrastructure are to be provided. Both the Copdock and Martlesham sites have existing "trickle" EV chargers present and the opportunity exists for interested parties to incorporate these into their proposals.
Option agreements are available to lease each of the three sites for the construction and operation of Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, subject to planning. All option agreements will be for a period of 18 months and available at an option fee of £5,000 plus VAT (if applicable).
Interested parties are invited to submit their proposals to lease one or more of the sites for the development of Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, subject to planning.
All interested parties are advised to register their initial interest with Fenn Wright, who will be able to provide further details of the timeframe for the submission of proposals and the associated criteria.
The Martlesham site can be viewed at anytime during Park and Ride operating hours with no prior arrangement necessary.
