Mill Lane Development Brief

Land at Mill Lane, Stowmarket (The proposed "Gateway 14" Business and Logistics Park)

The Stowmarket Area Action Plan (SAAP) (adopted February 2013) allocated a green field site to the south of the A14 and to the west of the A1120 for employment use, open space, leisure and recreation. This area is referred to as the Stowmarket Business and Enterprise Park.

The Mill Lane Development Brief was adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document by the Council's Executive Committee on Monday 10th March 2014. Copies of the relevant documents can be accessed via the following links:

Part of the Gateway 14 Site has now been given Food Enterprise Zone (Map) status.  This means the businesses moving into that zone can benefit from a 5 year business rate free period worth up to £275,000.
