A reception for East Anglia region commercial agents was held on Friday 13th October, 2017, by developer JAYNIC to officially launch its 2m sq ft Suffolk Park business, distribution and manufacturing project in Bury St Edmunds that included a tour of the park followed by a full English breakfast at nearby Ravenwood Hall and a prize draw.
36 East Anglia agents from around the region including Norwich, Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Colchester and Cambridge attended the event.
The winner of the prize draw was John Birchall of Fenn Wright in Ipswich who won a ‘goliath’ (4 litres) of sloe gin, with runners up Patrick Stanton of Bidwells in Cambridge and Mark Kohler of Merrifields in Bury St Edmunds winning 2 litre bottles and all attendees receiving miniatures of sloe gin to prepare them for the winter cold.
Project Director, Simon Wilson of JAYNIC said:
“We had a tremendous turnout from the regional agents and received really positive feedback about the scheme with all the agents really excited that Suffolk Park is now being delivered.”
“JAYNIC’s proactive approach opening up the park will enable 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”
JAYNIC has benefited from an innovative agreement with St Edmundsbury Borough Council who provided a £3m loan facility agreement towards the road infrastructure and landscaping.
In recognition of the site’s historic links with the World War 2 Rougham Airfield there will be two information boards installed along the site’s cycleways for viewing by members of the public. The information boards were designed in close coordination with Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum to raise awareness of the site’s historic significance. Stainless steel markers will also be installed throughout the park marking where the historic airfield runways crossed today’s roads.
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.

“Suffolk Park has already got off to a tremendous start with the sale of 10-acres to local major employer Treatt at the beginning of 2017 and the commencement of infrastructure works in October. The new Rougham Tower Road that links the park directly to nearby Junction 45 of the A14 has just opened and a reserved matters application was recently submitted for two distribution units totalling 350,000 sq ft. at the park.”
