JAYNIC APPOINTED AS PROMOTION PARTNER FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT ON A 39-ACRE A14 SITE NEXT TO CAMBRIDGE SERVICES

Jaynic has been appointed as land promotion partner on a 39-acre prime site at the Boxworth Road junction with the A14 at Boxworth to the south of Cambridge Services.

The site is being promoted for B1, B2 and B8 employment uses, on behalf of the landowner. The site is identified in the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) for development.

Nic Rumsey, managing director of Jaynic, said: “This site has huge potential for a warehouse/business park scheme of up to 580,000 sq ft and we will shortly start discussions with South Cambridgeshire District Council about this opportunity.” 

Jaynic has built a strong reputation for promoting land through the planning system for residential and employment use and for the development of high-quality warehousing, logistics and business parks. It works in partnership with landowners and occupiers.

The company has 7.39 million sq ft of warehouse and business park development throughout Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex that is being or is earmarked for development, resulting from land promotion agreements with landlords.

JAYNIC is an established property company that specialises in promoting land for residential and employment development through the planning process, the implementation of pump-priming infrastructure and development of buildings on a speculative and bespoke basis.

Jaynic has recently been appointed by Mid-Suffolk Council’s development company as joint venture partner on its Gateway 14 site with potential for 2m sq ft of business, warehousing and high-tech innovation space on the A14 at Stowmarket.

Jaynic’s Suffolk Park major employment site in Bury St Edmunds, is now well established. Global flavour and fragrance solutions company Treatt plc recently moved into the 112,000 sq ft first phase of its HQ there. Also, logistics companies are locating on the park with Unipart taking  a 206,000 sq ft warehouse and an 870,000 sq ft warehouse is being built for Belgian logistics group Weerts as its first location in the UK. This follows on from garden furniture import company M H Star taking a 105,000 sq ft warehouse in 2020.

Jaynic has developed the EpiCentre innovation centre for young entrepreneurial and biotech companies on its Haverhill Research Park and is working on a further 1.75m sq ft business park at the former RAF airfield in Shepherd’s Grove near Stanton, Suffolk.

On the residential side, acting on behalf of a landowner, it won a planning consent for a 125 unit residential scheme with 30% affordable housing at Red Lodge on the A14 and sold the site to Barratt Eastern Counties.

Its development activity over the last 25 years has been predominantly focused on East Anglia with schemes in the early years including Cambridge Research Park, Buckingway Business Park at Swavesey, the University of Essex’s, Knowledge Gateway, and Haverhill Business Park.
