A NEW BUSINESS & LOGISTICS PARK FOR THE EASTERN REGION
Gateway 14 is set to become the destination of choice along the A14 corridor and will consist of a mixed-use, market facing business park for warehousing and logistics with an innovation cluster within the “space to innovate” enterprise zone. The strategic aim is to benefit the wider economic area of Mid Suffolk, especially the growth of creative and technology businesses in the area, while also maximising opportunities for inward investment, job creation and wider community benefits. It is intended that the main infrastructure will commence by Spring 2021 so that occupation can start in early 2022. The draft masterplans show how the site could accommodate logistics buildings up to 1,000,000 sq ft, with roadside / retail uses (subject to planning) along the A14 frontage as well as the ability to accommodate headquarters office/R&D; campus style buildings from 3,000 sq ft. With dedicated funding already in place, we are able to commence the infrastructure works as soon as planning permission is granted. We can therefore deliver bespoke buildings alongside the infrastructure works allowing occupation by early 2022.
Gateway 14 sits immediately alongside the A14, the principal trunk route for UK logistics connecting the Midlands and the UK’s largest and busiest container port at Felixstowe, which serves as a primary route for export to European and world markets. The site is 26 miles from the Port of Felixstowe, 12.5 miles to Ipswich and the A12, and 45 miles to M11 and linking to the wider motorway network.
