Land promoter and developer Jaynic has entered into a land promotion agreement on 279-acres adjacent to the A11 at Barton Mills, Suffolk, with the land offering significant potential for future commercial development.

Located on the ‘Cambridge-Norwich A11 Tech Corridor’, this significant employment opportunity would provide a safe new entrance to Barton Mills via a new junction on the A11, bringing with it the opportunity to incorporate the A11-Newmarket Road crossroads at Herringswell Road and closure of the A11 access from Newmarket Road at Tuddenham Road, both of which have poor highway safety records. Pedestrian/cycleway connectivity would be improved, and sustainable links created via new and existing routes.

Andrew Anderson, Director at Jaynic responsible for the proposal, said: “We hope to achieve a local plan allocation in due course for a significant new business park along this strategic corridor, together with key highway safety improvements, both of which will provide local and district-wide benefits.

“The site has not been allocated in the draft local plan but was identified in a recent evidence-based document as a potential opportunity to grow the district’s existing commercial sites,” added Anderson.

Jaynic looks forward to working with all stakeholders including West Suffolk Council, the local community and businesses to promote the very real economic development and highway benefits that would come from such a development.

The scheme would also deliver improvements to the ecological constraint zones within the site, meeting Biological Net Gain requirements and providing wider ecological benefits, with potential to help bring forward other developments in the area with significant ecological constraints.

Jaynic is an established property company focusing on land promotion and business space development in the south and east of England. At Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, it has developed 1.3m sq ft of warehouse and business space to date and has another 283,000 sq ft under construction. Also, Jaynic is appointed by Mid-Suffolk Council on its Gateway 14 site at Stowmarket to manage the development of up to 2.36m sq ft of business, logistics and innovation development.

The company has a strong track record in the promotion of land through the planning process and, thereafter, the delivery of high quality, sustainable and efficient development.

Jaynic was advised by Martyn Holland, property partner and Sarah Swann, senior associate at national law firm Irwin Mitchell.

Property agents Hazells and Bidwells will be working with Jaynic to promote the site to occupiers and the Council alike.

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.
