The new main estate road which will serve a multi-million pound Suffolk business park has been opened by a council leader.

John Griffiths, leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, opened the road at Suffolk Park, on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds, which has been completed along with all infrastructure services and landscaping.

The road opening will be followed shortly by the start of two major speculative units at the 114-acre park, which will be completed before the end of the year.

Ben Oughton, development director at developer Jaynic, said: “The opening of the main estate road, infrastructure services and landscaping brings Suffolk Park a step closer to creating a complete working environment for occupiers and, in addition to local company Treatt who will be building its new global HQ on the park’s enterprise zone, negotiations are progressing well with other companies.

“The quality of the environment is very important to us. We believe that this investment will appeal to potential occupiers and their employees.”

Mr Griffiths said: “I am delighted that St Edmundsbury has been able to support this key part of the development at Suffolk Park, which in time will serve both the expansion of existing successful local businesses and help attract new ones to this wonderful part of west Suffolk.

“This will enable the creation of new jobs and new skills all of which will help both the economy and the prosperity of our local communities and help ensure that west Suffolk continues to be a success story for generations to come.

“It is great to hear that negotiations are progressing well with other companies and I look forward to more announcements over the weeks and months ahead.”

The estate road contract was undertaken by Jackson Civils and the landscaping contract by Aspect Landscape to designs by Indigo Landscape Architects, which includes 500 trees, 1.25 miles of hedge, 500 saplings and 22,000 route shrubs.
