PROJECT: Residential

SITE VALUE: £4m, GDV £17m

DESCRIPTION

A 6.5 acre former coal and waste depot, located within the Leeds commuter belt. The site was subject to significant contamination and other technical issues. However, it provided an opportunity to deliver a high quality family housing scheme with an outlook over the adjacent RSPB wildlife reserve.

OUTCOME / ACHIEVEMENTS

An outline planning permission for 79 houses was successfully negotiated. This included a viability appraisal which allowed us to accommodate the significant remediation and servicing costs, whilst still providing affordable housing.

All of the contamination and technical issues were fully investigated and the site was marketed with the benefit of a suite of costed solutions. This ensured we were able to minimise risk and maximise the sale price.

STATUS

The site was sold to Taylor Wimpey in July 2014 following a competitive tender process.

PROJECT: Mixed use - Commercial and Residential

GDV: circa £125m

DESCRIPTION

A 30 acre site, assembled and master-planned to create a 450,000 sq ft Business / R&D Park, Hotel, Day Nursery, Pub/Restaurant and 150 Residential Units.

OUTCOME / ACHIEVEMENTS

Following extensive public consultation, a mixed-use planning permission was secured, including 150 residential units. The local authority were keen to see this gateway site brought forward as it had remained undeveloped despite being allocated for 'employment' for over 20 years.

Through a viability exercise, we were able to secure the residential allocation in the masterplan, in order to create the value required to fund the infrastructure and site enabling works.

As part of the infrastructure works, the residential land was fully serviced, including utilities at each spur into the plot, formation and planting of the public open space, ground engineering to allow optimum foundation design and completion in-part of the surface water drainage system. On completing these works (and taking into account the additional costs and affordable housing differential), the residential land was sold to a PLC housebuilder at a premium of 30% over historic land values in the town.

Through successful applications to the Government's Growing Places initiative and the introduction of private finance, Jaynic established an innovative public:private funding arrangement which enabled the completion of site enabling works. The funding partners for these works were New Anglia & Greater Cambridge GP Local Enterprise Partnerships, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and the Bank of London and The Middle East plc.

REQUIREMENTS

LAND

  • For Planning promotion with potential for residential or commercial development
  • For sale or to be worked within joint ventures to maximise the landowners receipts


INVESTMENTS

  • Existing income producing residential or commercial properties with asset management / development angles. Ideally high yielding with income for 2 years plus. From £1-5m lot size.


NEW JOINT VENTURES

  • Landowners seeking a development partner to extract a higher return from their asset
  • Occupiers seeking new purpose built property to meet their requirements. Particularly prospective partners who have no 'in house' expertise but are a well- capitalised business with an occupational requirement and/or land.
  • Prospective entrepreneurs/ new developers. The biggest problem with the first deal is usually money and track record. Sharing our financial and property experience, aspiring developers can realise their potential deals and get on the track record ladder.
  • Financial partners/investors. We are always keen to build new relationships. Typically these will be investors seeking direct property exposure but either lacking the expertise or management resource to get involved in the type of transaction in which we excel.

jaynic seeks distribution units planning consent at suffolk park bse


JAYNIC SEEKS RESERVED MATTERS CONSENT FOR TWO MAJOR DISTRIBUTION UNITS TOTALLING 350,00 SQ FT AT SUFFOLK PARK, BURY ST EDMUNDS, SUFFOLK

31 AUGUST 2017

Developer Jaynic, as a major show of confidence in the Bury St Edmunds industrial and logistics property market, is seeking detailed planning consent for two major distribution sheds totalling 350,000 sq ft at its 114-acre Suffolk Park scheme.

The development is part of a multi-partner initiative to support a range of new and existing businesses in the popular Bury St Edmunds area and to continue to create jobs and prosperity. It is envisioned that the development will have a mix of businesses.

The reserved matters application submitted to St Edmundsbury Borough Council is for one unit of 205,000 sq ft and one of 150,000 sq ft. Jaynic plans to develop them speculatively to capture unsatisfied demand from occupiers seeking to lease large distribution space along the A14 corridor.

Simon Wilson Suffolk Park project director at Jaynic says;

"We are aiming for a decision by Autumn 2017. A positive outcome would enable us to have units ready for occupation in Quarter 3, 2018, comfortably ahead of anything comparable in the East of England Region."

Richard Sullivan, Savills' national head of industrial and logistics adds:

"The supply of large, good quality industrial and distribution units in the UK is at an all-time low. The ability to deliver units of this size and specification into the region offers an excellent opportunity to attract new occupiers to Bury St Edmunds as demand from a wide-range of logistics operators remains at an all-time high."

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells, local agents on the scheme, comments,

"there is strong demand for business and distribution space in Bury St Edmunds and these two units would come at a time where there is very little currently available in the region."

Suffolk Park is adjacent to the new Eastern Relief Road leading to Junction 45 of the A14 which can accommodate up to 2 m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial space. Also, it provides a unique opportunity for a "regional hub" single distribution warehouse of up to 750,000 sq ft.

Earlier this year St Edmundsbury Borough Council granted Jaynic, as development promoter, outline consent for B1 (office, research & development and light industrial) and B8 (warehousing, storage and distribution) development for the whole 114-acre site. The park includes Enterprise Zone status on 35 acres.

A 10-acre site has already been presold to Treatt - a leading beverage ingredients manufacturer for a new 200,000 sq ft global headquarters facility to be constructed within the Enterprise Zone.

Jaynic is finalising a construction contract for the infrastructure works with the intention that the main estate road between the Eastern Relief Road and Lady Miriam Way and associated infrastructure works will be completed by the end of this year.

Bury St Edmunds based Hazells Chartered Surveyors are local agents for the scheme and interested parties should contact either Jonathan Lloyd or Richard Pyatt on 01284 702626.

Savills, Industrial and Logistics' department in London has been instructed to advise on the Big Shed potential - Contact Richard Sullivan 0207 409 8125.

ST EDMUNDSBURY COUNCIL SIGNS LOAN FACILITY FOR INFRA-STRUCTURE COSTS AT SUFFOLK PARK, BURY ST EDMUNDS

1 AUGUST 2017

Plans to help boost the local economy and jobs has taken a major step forward thanks to an innovative agreement between Jaynic Suffolk Park Limited and St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The Council has signed a £3 million loan facility agreement with the promoter of the 114-acre Suffolk Park commercial scheme in Bury St Edmunds adjacent to Junction 45 of the A14.

The enables Jaynic to borrow up to £3m towards infra-structure costs to make sure facilities are in place to attract business and help create jobs in the area.

Jaynic can use the loan facility for up to two years, repayable in full, towards the main estate road together with two spur roads, drainage, distribution of mains services, internet provision and landscaping.

The loan agreement is part of the joint public and private sector initiative to boost the local economy and maintain St Edmundsbury as a successfully growing area that supports current and new companies.

Simon Wilson, project director for Suffolk Park, says:

"We are delighted to have the continued support of St Edmundsbury Borough Council in this. The loan facility together with the monies realised from selling 10 acres to Treatt PLC, means that the infrastructure for the whole site, covering the current and all future phases is now fully funded."

"With the infra-structure in place we can provide fast track occupation for companies planning to move to Suffolk Park that will benefit the whole Bury St Edmunds economy."

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council said:

"This further emphasises our commitment to bringing economic growth to west Suffolk, removing the barriers so that existing businesses can expand and succeed, as well as attracting new ones to the local area. We invested in the Eastern Relief Road which has opened up the employment land on Suffolk Park and the wider Suffolk Business Park. We also worked with New Anglia LEP to establish the site as part of its Space to Innovate Enterprise Zone

"All of this will lead to thousands of new jobs, the development of new skills, expertise and opportunities, particularly for younger people as they leave education. That in turn will lead to greater wealth and prosperity which brings better living conditions for all our residents."

The development masterplan, which received outline planning consent in April, provides for up to 2m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial space at Suffolk Park and includes a potential 750,000 sq ft 'big box' distribution warehouse on the east side of the site.

Enterprise Zone status on 14 hectares of Suffolk Park, which was secured by New Anglia LEP and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, means that any qualifying company taking new accommodation within the zone will be eligible for relief of up to £55,000 pa against the rates payable for five years amounting to a saving of £275,000 over that period.

JAYNIC AWARDS INFRASTRUCTURE CONTRACT AT 114-ACRE SUFFOLK PARK DEVELOPMENT IN BURY ST EDMUNDS TO JACKSON CIVILS

OCT 2017

Hot on the heels of the opening of the new Eastern Relief road from Junction 45 of the A14, Jaynic has awarded the main infrastructure contract to Ipswich-based Jacksons Civils.

Construction starts in early October and is due for completion in March 2018.

The contract includes earthworks and the creation of the main estate road from Lady Miriam Way to the Sybil Andrew's School roundabout on Rougham Tower Avenue that opened on the 25th September, as well as the installation of utilities with foul and surface water drainage into the site. A separate landscaping contract will be let shortly. The total cost of the two contracts is more than £3m.

Jaynic Project Director Simon Wilson said:

"We are delighted to have Jacksons on board. They are regionally based but part of a national group and we chose them because they are very professional and totally understand infrastructure.

"Jaynic's proactive approach to constructing the spine road so soon after the link to the A14 has been completed brings key infrastructure and servicing into the wider 114-acre site enabling early development of the whole site for a range of uses from 2,000 sq ft to 750,000 sq ft far faster than competing sites in the Region," he added.

Jaynic has benefited from an innovative agreement with St Edmundsbury Borough Council who provided a £3m loan facility agreement towards the infrastructure.

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury said:

"This loan by the Council has helped enable Jaynic to bring forward these vital infrastructure improvements, and are part of our commitment to remove barriers to jobs growth, and bring forward land and services for our existing firms here, as well as attracting new business to the area. We are keen, and are acting, to help deliver a greater level of skills, pay and opportunities for young people as they leave education, in turn enabling greater wealth, prosperity and better living conditions for all of our local residents."

JAYNIC SECURES OUTLINE PLANNING CONSENT FOR 114 ACRE SUFFOLK PARK, BURY ST EDMUNDS, SUFFOLK

12 APRIL 2017

This morning St Edmundsbury Borough Council granted outline planning consent for the major 114-acre Suffolk Park business scheme at Bury St Edmunds, adjacent to the new Eastern Relief Road leading to Junction 45 of the A14 which will accommodate up to 2 m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial space.

The St Edmundsbury Development Control Committee granted Jaynic, as development promoter, outline consent for B1 (office, research & development and light industrial) and B8 (warehousing, storage and distribution) development, together with reserved matters approval for the main internal road linking the Eastern Relief Road with Lady Miriam Way South plus site-wide framework landscaping. The site has Enterprise Zone status on 35 acres.

The outline consent includes some B2 (manufacturing) space on the 10-acre site pre-sold to Treatt at the beginning of this year, which will be the subject of a separate reserved matters application shortly. Treatt, a leading beverage ingredient solutions manufacturer, has been located in Bury St Edmunds since 1971. The company is currently located across seven acres and six separate units in Northern Way and will consolidate its operations into a new 200,000 sq ft global headquarters facility to be constructed within the Enterprise Zone. Further B2 development may be possible for named occupiers, subject to planning.

Nic Rumsey of Jaynic, says:

"We are grateful for the active support and assistance of St Edmundsbury that has enabled us to present a planning application that could be granted planning consent within only three months. This consent proves that Suffolk Park is a reality. It is currently the only major allocated employment site in Bury St Edmunds with an outline planning permission. We have already sold a substantial site to major local company and talks are progressing with other interested parties. The site is unique in the town and region for the scale of buildings it can offer. Occupiers requirements for buildings from 10,000 sq ft up to 700,000 sq ft can now be accommodated within 12-15 months from now."

A spokesman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said:

"This is a significant step in successfully bringing forward this major employment allocation on the east side of Bury St Edmunds. The Council has worked hard to achieve this, loaning money to developers to design the Eastern Relief Road, investing money in the road itself and negotiating the land deals. We then worked with New Anglia LEP to secure Enterprise Zone status for 14 hectares of the Suffolk Business Park offering Business Rate incentives over a 25-year period, to encourage both the expansion of existing busi-nesses that previously may have been considering locating away from the area in or-der to find the space to grow, and to entice new businesses to the St Edmundsbury area. All of this is part of our strategic priority to enable economic growth, lifting skills and expertise across West Suffolk and with it levels of pay, creating new opportunities for younger people as they leave education."

Chris Starkie, Managing Director of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, says:

"Suffolk Park offers enormous potential for inward investment and economic growth - that's the reason the LEP invested £10m to link the site directly to the A14 and selected it for Enterprise Zone status. Planning consent takes the site to the next stage, allowing more businesses to benefit from discounted business rates, simplified planning and Superfast broadband and from the excellent infrastructure Suffolk Park will soon have."

Daemmon Reeve, Treatt's Group CEO comments,

"We are very excited about the development of our new global headquarters. Our results are showing substantial progress year on year with new business wins and a strong performance across all our categories. We employ around 200 staff and having operated here for nearly 50 years we were very keen to remain in Bury St Edmunds, particularly in view of the commitment to business growth by St Edmundsbury Borough Council, the New Anglia LEP and other stakeholders. The planned investment of between £21 and £31 million (net of disposing of the current site) will enable us to have facilities which are not only very impressive but are also fit for purpose for the future."

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells, agents on the scheme comments that

"there is strong demand for business and distribution space in Bury St Edmunds being that it is located on the strategically important A14 east/west cross route into the UK motorway system."

The adopted masterplan for Suffolk Park provides for a high quality, well landscaped business park with careful consideration given to building design and outside storage. A key element of the consent is landscaping. The existing landscape features, includ-ing the principal trees and hedgerows will be substantially retained and within the development plots planting will be used to soften the frontages and provide enclosure for parking areas. A landscaping strategy is to be formulated to ensure con-sistency in the planting and in the species used. Native species will be used where possible. This will ensure that landscape is an integral part of plot design and result in a consistent appearance throughout the development.

Also, sustainability plays an important part in the plans including a requirement that facilities are installed in all new premises that allow for staff to walk and cycle to work. A new cycle/footway link will be created from the A14 underpass along the western boundary of the site to the Sybil Andrews Academy. This includes widening and resurfacing the cycleway along Lady Miriam Way South and introducing a new section linking the underpass to the southern section of Lady Miriam Way South.

Jaynic has already gone out to tender for the infrastructure works with the intention of having the chosen contractor on site so that the main estate road between the Eastern Relief Road and Lady Miriam Way and associated infrastructure works are completed by the end of 2017. Individual occupier's buildings, subject to reserved matters approval can commence whilst the infrastructure works are ongoing. This means companies could be in occupation and operational early in 2018.

newlands school site development seaford

PLANNING APPLICATION SUBMITTED FOR MAJOR RESIDENTIAL SITE IN SEAFORD, EAST SUSSEX

Jaynic Properties Limited has submitted an outline planning application for a scheme of up to 238 homes on the redundant site of the former Newlands School, off Eastbourne Road, Seaford, East Sussex.

The planning application has been lodged with Lewes District Council and will provide much needed new housing, ranging from starter homes to larger family houses. The scheme will be sympathetically developed to reflect the existing character of the area and will also include up to 40% affordable homes, in accordance with Lewes DC and national planning policy requirements.

The Newlands School building was constructed in the early 20th century and, whilst it is unlisted, it will be retained, having been recognised for its local importance. The building will be converted into apartments and incorporated into the development proposals for the wider site.

The landscaping on site will be designed to respect and retain the setting of the Newlands School building and adjoining listed building at Sutton Place. Whilst currently private land, the finished development will incorporate meaningful and useable public open spaces for existing and future residents to use.

It is envisaged that around 50% of the 6.35-hectare site (15.69 acres) is likely to remain green, be it public open space, a new equipped children’s play area, garden space or retained and proposed planting. The proposals also include a new tree-lined boulevard leading up to the former school building, which will frame the building and provide enhanced views from Eastbourne Road.

In addition to the on-site provision of affordable housing, public open space and a play area for use by existing and future residents, considerable financial contributions will be made by the developer through Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payments, in support of local facilities and infrastructure.  The sum levied will be directed towards new facilities for education, health etc. in Seaford, with the District and Town Councils deciding exactly how the financial contributions will be distributed to existing and new facilities in the area.

Nic Rumsey, managing director of Jaynic Properties Limited, said:

“Our proposals provide an opportunity to create an extremely attractive residential scheme in a wonderful setting. The site is one of the only major sites available in Seaford, with any expansion of the town constrained both by the sea and the surrounding South Downs National Park.

“Our planning application was first prepared, then refined, following extensive discussions with council planning officers, District and Town councillors; and follows a public consultation event at the end of last year where there was a broad consensus in support of the residential development of the site.”

The council’s updated 2015 Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment identifies the Newlands site as having potential for housing development.

The development will be highly sustainable being close to Seaford town centre, public transport links, the Downs Leisure Centre, shops, cafes and restaurants. The layout will allow for greater connectivity to the surrounding area through cycle and pedestrian links into the adjoining residential areas.

Also, the proposals will blend sympathetically with the adjacent Grade II listed Sutton Place which has a discrete setting and is defined by the semi-formal parkland it fronts on to, together with the mature tree boundary. This is visually and physically separate from the Newlands School building to the east.

Through working closely with the local community and relevant Council officers/stakeholders, Jaynic Properties has ensured that the design of the development will create a desirable place for people to live, and one that Seaford can be proud of.

JAYNIC SUBMITS OUTLINE PLANNING APPLICATION FOR WHOLE 114 ACRE SUFFOLK PARK, BURY ST EDMUNDS, SUFFOLK

And sells first 10 acres to Treatt

Jaynic, as development promoter has submitted an outline application for B1 and B8, together with detail for the main infrastructure and landscaping on Taylor Wimpey’s 114 acre site at Bury St Edmunds. Suffolk Park, which has Enterprise Zone status on 37 acres, and will accommodate up to 2 m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial units.

Simultaneously it has sold a 10-acre site to Treatt – advised by agents Carter Jonas - which will finance the cost of the park’s initial infrastructure.

Treatt, is one of the world’s longest established solutions providers for the flavour, fragrance and personal care industries, and has been located in Bury St Edmunds since 1971. The company is to consolidate from several locations in the town into a new global headquarter facility to be constructed within the Enterprise Zone. The purchase price has not been disclosed.

The outline planning application for B1 and B8 sets out a development masterplan providing for up to 2m sq ft at Suffolk Park including a potential 750,000 sq ft ‘big box’ distribution warehouse on the east side of the site. The whole park is within a larger area allocated as employment land as an extension of the established Moreton Hall business area by St Edmundsbury Borough Council in its ‘Vision 2031’ local plan.

It is hoped that the outline application which is policy compliant will gain approval in March 2017. Jaynic intends to have contractors on site to undertake all necessary infrastructure works as quickly as possible. This will create a fully serviced attractive landscaped environment to meet the needs of modern businesses.

Nic Rumsey of Jaynic, said:

“We are grateful for the active support and assistance of St Edmundsbury that has enabled us to get this major planning application submitted within only six months, and are delighted with the swift sale of the first site on the park to Treatt before we have obtained planning. This augurs well for the future of the project. Suffolk Park is in a prime location next to the established Moreton Hall area. Accessed from the new Eastern Relief Road due for completion in the Summer 2017, it equidistant between Junctions 44 and 45 of the A14 giving direct access to the whole of the UK motorway network.”

Dean Taylor, Director of Operations at Treatt, said:

“Treatt is delighted to announce the exchange of contracts at Suffolk Park. This will be one of the most significant company developments in the last 50 years and will revolutionise almost every aspect of the business. It will enable Treatt to excite its customers even more, improve efficiency and further accelerate its growth”

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, said:

“After so many years of very hard work by St Edmundsbury and many others, I am delighted that Suffolk Park is now rapidly moving from plans on paper to reality on the ground, alongside a new school, new community facilities, new homes and better transport links through the eastern relief road.

“The very real prospect of new jobs and inward investment is also great news and it is perhaps particularly pleasing that Treatt are looking to build their new global headquarters here. This really is an excellent next step in delivering this ambitious project, not just for Bury St Edmunds but West Suffolk and beyond, and I would like to thank Jaynic and everyone else involved.”

Bespoke properties from 10,000 sq ft upwards will be available to let or for sale. It is intended that, subject to planning, occupiers’ new properties will be built in parallel to the surrounding work so that occupation can be given as quickly as possible.

Enterprise Zone status, which was secured by New Anglia LEP and West Suffolk County Council, means that any qualifying company taking new accommodation within it will be eligible for relief of up to £55,000 pa against the rates payable for five years amounting to a saving of £275,000 over that period.

Being developed in parallel is Taylor Wimpey’s 500-home Moreton Hall scheme. The new Sybil Andrews Academy School opposite has just opened and it’s gym will soon be available for use by the Public.

Jaynic has appointed Bury St Edmunds based Hazells Chartered Surveyors as agents for the scheme and interested parties should contact either Jonathan Lloyd or Richard Pyatt on 01284 702626 for further information

JAYNIC SCOOPS DEVELOPMENT PROMOTION PARTNERSHIP WITH TAYLOR WIMPEY ON 114-ACRE EMPLOYMENT AREA AT SUFFOLK BUSINESS PARK, BURY ST EDMUNDS, SUFFOLK

East Anglia business and research park specialist Jaynic Properties has been appointed development promoter by Taylor Wimpey to promote its 114-acre commercial site, including 35 acres with Enterprise Zone status, at The Suffolk Business Park. The land is part of St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s strategic allocation of 168 acres for the extension of the business park.

Jaynic’s brief from Taylor Wimpey and the Council is to work up a fully detailed masterplan, apply for outline planning for the agreed range of uses before Christmas and then implement all necessary works and infrastructure as quickly as possible. This will create a fully serviced attractive landscaped environment to meet the needs of modern businesses.

Jaynic’s brief from Taylor Wimpey and the Council is to work up a fully detailed masterplan, apply for outline planning for the agreed range of uses before Christmas and then implement all necessary works and infrastructure as quickly as possible. This will create a fully serviced attractive landscaped environment to meet the needs of modern businesses.

The primary employment uses applied for will be for B1 offices, research and development facilities, Light Industrial, B2 General industrial and B8 warehousing accommodation. However, it is likely that the scheme will also provide sustainable supporting uses to both the existing and new occupiers, with facilities such as a hotel, pub, crèche, coffee shops and leisure being provided. In all there is the potential to provide up to 2 million sq. ft. for new employment use

Nic Rumsey, managing director of Jaynic, said:

“We are delighted to be appointed after a detailed selection process. This is a key site and provides a significant proportion of the strategic employment allocation for Bury St Edmunds up to and beyond 2031. We look forward to working with Taylor Wimpey and St Edmundsbury to attract a mix of occupiers providing a range of employment opportunities that could create thousands of jobs for the town.”

Freehold serviced plots will be offered and bespoke properties from 10,000 sq ft upwards will be available to let or for sale. It is intended that, subject to planning, occupiers’ new properties will be built in parallel to the surrounding work so that occupation can be given as quickly as possible.

Enterprise Zone status means that any company taking new accommodation within it will qualify for relief of up to £55,000 pa against the rates payable for five years amounting to a saving of £275,000 over that period.

Suffolk Park, adjacent to Moreton Hall, will soon be accessible from both junctions’ 44 and 45 of the A14 trunk road, once major infrastructure improvements, including the construction of the Eastern Relief road linking the existing commercial area with junction 45 of the A14, are completed in the summer of 2017. The A14 links the port of Felixstowe with the national motorway network.

John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, said:

“The expansion of the Suffolk Business Park is all about creating the right conditions for growth and future prosperity and with it the creation of new jobs for the people of West Suffolk. We know that we have some very successful local businesses that need more space to develop, and we know that this site’s prime location between the Port of Felixstowe and the science and innovation centre of Cambridge, as well as its ease of access to London, make it a very attractive proposition for the scores of big businesses looking to relocate.  This is another major step in turning our vision into a reality.”

Steve Rolt of Taylor Wimpey said:

“We are delighted that the project is going forward and are confident that Jaynic will be successful in fulfilling their brief.”

The £15million Eastern Relief Road (ERR) funded by New Anglia LEP, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Suffolk County Council is due to be completed by the summer of 2017. Being developed in parallel are Taylor Wimpey’s 500-home Moreton hall scheme as well as the new Sybil Andrews Academy School. With other projects the ERR is estimated to bring in 14,000 jobs and £275m to the town over the next 25 years.

In East Anglia, Jaynic has a strong track-record having developed Cambridge Research Park and Buckingway Business Park in Cambridge, the University of Essex Knowledge Gateway in Colchester and Haverhill Business Park and currently Haverhill Research Park.

HAVERHILL RESEARCH PARK WINS ENTERPRISE ZONE STATUS

Haverhill Research Park has won Enterprise Zone status giving potential occupiers on the development benefits including a business rate discount of up to 100% for five years.

Promoted by the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP), The Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Rt Hon George Osborne MP, unveiled his enterprise zone allocation, including Haverhill Research Park, as part of the Spending Review and Autumn Statement on Wednesday 25 November.

Located to the east of Cambridge, Haverhill Research Park, now part of the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone, has planning consent for up to 450,000 sq ft of high quality commercial development space with full infrastructure in place set in 30 acres of landscaped parkland.

Nic Rumsey, director of Jaynic, the developer of Haverhill Research Park commented,

"This is fantastic news for Haverhill Research Park, and for Haverhill generally. Being part of the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone brings several benefits and will undoubtedly add to our competitive edge within the Greater Cambridge area. We look forward to pushing forward with this as soon as possible."

The Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone aims to reach out to the greater Cambridge communities. The advancement into surrounding market towns, new neighbourhoods and rural areas will contribute to, and in turn, improve local and national economic growth.

Mark Reeve, Chairman of the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, said,

"Securing Enterprise Zone status for the Cambridge Compass is a real boost for the local economy. We know that businesses, particularly international ones, want a base in Cambridge, which can drive up rents and constrain supply."

Many national and international businesses now have the incentive to move to the Greater Cambridge area.

On 1 April 2016, the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone will come into full effect. New occupiers will be offered the 100% business rate discount until 31 March 2022.

News of Haverhill Research Park winning Enterprise Zone status comes less than a year after the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP) developed and submitted the proposal to Government.

MONTESSORI NURSERY OPENS IN HAVERHILL

A new Montessori nursery opened in Haverhill on Monday.

The nursery, on the Research Park site in Three Counties Way, is being run by a company called Colourbox which has operated a nursery in Newmarket for the past 25 years.

Colourbox were approached by research park developers Jaynic at the start of the process, and have had input throughout.

Susie Norman, director of Colourbox, said:

"It's been a real labour of love. We have been able to design it right from the beginning. We've got underfloor heating, and every room opens on to the garden."

The 76-place nursery also has a chef to cook meals for the children. There is currently a staff of six, but this is expected to grow.

The nursery, which has received funding from Suffolk County Council, is open to children aged three months to five years who are on government funding or private funding.

It uses the Montessori technique, which is about allowing children to learn and discover at their own pace. It is being run in partnership with the Samuel Ward Academy Trust.

Gemma Green, whose daughter Blythe, 2, attends Colourbox, said:

"She loves it, absolutely loves it. I'm struggling a little bit as a mummy, but they've made it really easy for me."

Nic Rumsey, of research park developer Jaynic, said:

"This is another vital step towards providing Haverhill with a mixed use employment zone that is already providing homes, a restaurant and now nursery care.

New Innovation Centre for Haverhill LEPS Secure Two Million Pounds of Funding
July 2014

Haverhill will become home to a new Innovation Centre after £2 million of investment was secured today by the Local Enterprise Partnerships (Monday 7th July 2014).

The Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (GCGP) and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (NALEP) applied for funding via the Government's Growth Deal, which provides funding for projects designed to boost the economy across the country.

In total, £2 million of investment will go directly towards the creation of the new £5.4 million Innovation Centre located at Haverhill Research Park which has recently been granted planned consent.

Known as The Epicentre, the 30,000 sq ft four-storey innovation centre will create a landmark development adjacent to the lake in the centre of the park and providing facilities for start-up and growing businesses, with a focus on the ICT, bio-tech and Agri-Tech sectors. It will include high specification offices and dry R&D accommodation as well as conference and meeting rooms, training facilities, and a coffee shop.

With an anticipated completion date of next year, The Epicentre could create up to 300 jobs providing a significant boost to the local economy.

This is not the first time both LEPs have invested in Haverhill Research Park, having provided loan financing to the owners, Carisbrooke Investments, to enable the early delivery of the access road which in turn unlocked the site for both housing and employment use. This funding has already been paid back and the road is complete.

Grahame Nix, Chief Executive of the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership said:

"Haverhill Research Park is ideally located to provide much needed new innovation space for a range of pioneering businesses looking to start-up and grow. Its location close to Cambridge - the globally renowned innovation capital - means that we can help to expand the positive impact of the Cambridge phenomenon beyond the city boundaries enabling the wider economy to flourish."

Mark Pendlington, chairman of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership said:

"There is great potential to grow the number of high tech businesses in West Suffolk. The Innovation Centre will be a flagship building and a catalyst for the rapid development of the wider research park. It is a great vote of confidence in the project that we have secured this funding from Government."

Nic Rumsey, Director of Carisbrooke Investments, said:

"We only got detailed planning a week ago and are delighted to have agreed a joint venture with West Suffolk, which together with the Government funding secured by our LEPs will see the Epicentre brought to fruition in superfast time. We see the Epicentre of the landmark hub of the Research Park providing facilities for start-up and growing businesses."

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, added:

"West Suffolk has a strong track record of delivering successful projects and getting the job done. We have lead from the front, investing our own money and putting in every effort to secure the additional necessary support to deliver new and better jobs and a sustainable business community. I would like to thank the New Anglia and Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnerships for working so well with us and for sharing our commitment to Haverhill and its leading role in providing employment, investment and the future prosperity for West Suffolk where it is such an important town."

Growth Deal funding will be available to spend from April 2015. This allocation is the first of five years of funding committed by Government to support local economic growth.

Haverhill Research Park Innovation Centre Wins Planning Consent
June 2014

Last night – Wednesday 11th June, 2014 – St Edmundsbury Borough Council granted planning consent for The Epicentre, the £5 million innovation centre at Haverhill Research Park, Haverhill, giving the scheme a tremendous boost.

The 30,000 sq ft, four-storey innovation centre, will create a landmark development adjacent to the lake in the centre of the park and will provide facilities for start-up and growing businesses. The Epicentre is expected to be completed by September 2015 and could create up to 300 jobs.

Financing for The Epicentre is expected to be provided by the New Anglia and the Greater Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), both of whom have already funded the recently completed infra-structure for the park.

Nic Rumsey of Carisbrooke Investments says:

"The planning permission is very good news. We have worked closely with the council planning officers to bring this consent to fruition and much appreciate the positive support we have been given by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

"We are continuing to work up the design and expect to go out to tender by the end of June with a view to getting contractor proposals in during August. We hope to have completed arrangements for the funding with the LEPs by then, allowing us to complete the letting of the contract and to be on-site in October,"

The development will comprise high specification offices and dry R&D accommodation in a range of sizes, from 170 sq ft to 7,000 sq ft, together with conference and meeting rooms, training facilities and a 'work-hub' area for shared working. There will also be a cafe overlooking the lake which will create a focal point for the innovation centre as well as other businesses located on the 450,000 sq ft park.

The Epicentre will offer early-stage companies tailored support services designed to boost the growth of their businesses ranging from cost-effective, flexible, managed space to business advice, integrated telecoms, broadband internet access and networking facilities.

The Epicentre has already launched a 'virtual innovation centre' service with incentives for businesses to sign up including the use of the innovation centre address, a domain name, post handling and conference/meeting space at a reduced rate at the nearby Day's Inn Hotel, where free Wi-Fi is also available to virtual office tenants.

The new address will be The Epicentre, Haverhill Research Park, Three Counties Way, Haverhill, Suffolk, CB9 7FB.

The Epicentre will aim to stimulate innovation, product and process development and technology transfer, which will enhance growth, creativity, customer satisfaction both nationally and internationally for all its clients. The innovation centre will become a 'business incubator' offering experience, contacts, resources, and a presence in the local community.

The design of the building which has been created by architects Frank Shaw Associates will 'set the standard' for future building on the park providing exciting and contemporary architecture, with a double height glazed reception and a striking brise soleil canopy over the entrance.

The building will be clad with a mix of brick and two types of rainscreen cladding and there will be high quality landscaping with an avenue of pear trees on the north side of the building.

The sustainable elements of the design comprise photovoltaic panels on the roof to provide a source of renewable energy for the centre together with bicycle racks and showers and changing rooms for those wishing to cycle to work.

Agents for the £100m park are Cheffins and Carter Jonas. Helen Chaplin is the Park's onsite marketing manager.
