About this property
The Food Enterprise Park is a 100 acre development site within the Greater Norwich Food Enterprise Zone, the first 46 acres of which benefits from Local Development Order status with fast track planning to encourage and support food production, processing and agriculture through the co-location of commercial enterprises. Plots are available to buy or lease to accommodate facilities of 10,000 sq ft to 300,000 sq ft.
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 duelled A11 and M11.
The historic city of Norwich has an urban population of 213,000 (2011 Census) and offers an outstanding quality of life, with the stunning coastline, historic towns and Norfolk Broads all within easy reach.
A47 Road Improvements
The Government has agreed to £200m of improvements to the A47, including the dualling of the single carriageway section between North Tuddenham and Easton.
The upgrade works are scheduled for 2024 and propose a direct access to the site with a new roundabout. Journey times to and from the site will be significantly improved.
All infrastructure works are now in place for Phase One of the Food Enterprise Park, which include surface water (with 3 acre infiltration lagoon) and foul drainage, mains water and high speed broadband. UKPN 4MW electricity connection is completed, with further increase in power availability to 30MW available shortly.
The subjoined plot has frontage to the main estate road, Enterprise Way, and extends to 4.60 acres (1.86 hectares)
The main estate road running through the site has now been completed and a planning application submitted for the link road to connect the FEP to the proposed new grade separated junction of the soon-to-be upgraded and dualled A47.
