Major New Development at Haverhill Business Park
A further 600,000 sq ft of land is to be developed at Haverhill Business Park for bespoke freehold and leasehold buildings of up to 200,000 sq ft.
Plots for buildings from 10,000 sq ft upwards are available at the 55 acre park, all with outline planning consent for industrial, distribution and warehouse, office, trade counter, showroom and laboratory/R&D uses. This includes the 211,500 sq ft �Big Brother� plot, a big shed opportunity on 11 acres. The plot can be developed to include a 201,200 sq ft distribution unit, 10,300 sq ft of offices, parking for 188 cars and 23 HGV spaces. The plot is adjacent to Culina Logistics� new bespoke 194,510 sq ft distribution facility, which opened in August. Other occupants of the park include Percy Dalton's World Famous Peanut Company, Buildbase, Terence Barker Tanks, HID, a leading manufacturer in the access control industry, Stagecoach, a Days Inn Hotel and a Harvester Public House; the Haver Arms. Buildings can be typically delivered in 12 months.
The type of occupier that the park is attracting is proving the growing importance of Haverhill as a business location says developer, Nic Rumsey of Carisbrooke Investments: "With major companies such as Culina moving into the Park the benefits of Haverhill can�t be ignored. Not only is it a cost effective solution, the area has a highly skilled workforce and the location couldn�t be bettered for distribution to the UK and Europe. Haverhill is now well and truly on the map as a business location."
The release of the land coincides with the appointment of Jeffersons Commercial as letting agents alongside CBRE. Jeffersons believes that the new development will plug a much needed gap in the market: "As quality industrial units have become scarcer in the Cambridge area attention has moved further afield and Haverhill has increasingly become a favoured choice of location. But until now we haven�t seen anything on this scale, which has already proved it can attract national and multinational companies."
