The subject site is located to the south east of Bury St Edmunds town centre and is adjacent to Junction 44 of the A14.

The A14 connects Bury St Edmunds to Cambridge (circa 29 miles), Newmarket (15.5 mile) and Ipswich (circa 25 miles).

Access to the site is off Rougham Hill via the A134 (the principal access point to the south eastern side of Bury St Edmunds).

The site is located in a mixed use area with a series of light industrial units immediately to the east and the Animal Health Veterinary Laboratories Agency beyond.

Immediately to the south of the site, between the Rougham Hill roundabout and the A134 Sicklesmere Road, will be circa 1,250 homes and a new primary school which are due to be delivered along with a new relief road.

Terms & Conditions

West Suffolk Council aspire to create a gateway development on the site through the self-delivery and retention of a commercial development which delivers an investment stream from the site. There will be a three-stage bid process.
