On site works are now underway on one of East Anglia’s most exciting developments, the Norfolk Food Enterprise Park.
The first phase of road and service infrastructure is due for completion in the autumn, and construction of the first processing facility by the first occupier is now underway.
Condimentum, a new farming consortium set up by the region’s mustard and mint growers, have started groundworks on a 25,000 sq ft milling facility which will preserve the region’s links with the historic Colman’s brand.
The first 46 acres of the 100 acre site, which is situated in the Greater Norwich Food Enterprise Zone, benefits from Local Development Order status to encourage and support food production, processing and agriculture through the colocation of commercial enterprises.
Situated to the west of Norwich at Honingham, the FEP immediately adjoins the A47, one of the main transport routes in the region, linking Norwich to Kings Lynn and Peterborough to the west, and providing easy access to London and Cambridge via the dualled A11 and M11. Communications are set to be further improved following the dualling of the A47, and creation of a direct roundabout access into the site in 2021/2022.
James Alston, director of Food Enterprise Park Ltd, commented ‘It is fantastic to see the the site being opened up for development, and we are thrilled to have secured Condimentum and their milling facility, a use that is perfect for the FEP. We are in discussions with a number of other interested parties and we hope to make further announcements shortly’.
The site is being promoted by Brown & Co’s Norwich office, and serviced plots are available to purchase freehold, or to rent on a long lease basis, to accommodate units from 5,000 sq ft to 500,000 sq ft.
