The town is the primary commercial and administrative centre for West Suffolk and boasts a variety of service sector, production and manufacturing occupiers including major national operators such as Greene King, British Sugar, Claas and Taylor Wimpey, as well a number of public sector bodies.

Bury is also one of the main historic and cultural centres in the region providing a rich mix of leisure, retail and amenity facilities.

Suffolk Park, a 114 acre development will provide an attractive business environment incorporating high quality landscaping. It has the capacity to provide offices, Research and Development, industrial and warehousing accommodation up to a total of 2 million sq ft.

Occupier’s requirements for properties from 10,000 sq ft up to 750,000 sq ft can readily be accommodated by leasehold design and build or freehold turnkey packages. Alternatively freehold serviced land may be available from 1 acre upwards for companies wishing to arrange their own construction.

Suffolk Park is within a greater area of 168 acres allocated within St Edmundsbury’s local plan for employment. This envisages primarily B1 offices, Research & Development, Light Industrial, B8 Warehousing and some B2 General Industrial.

An outline planning application for employment uses Classes B1 and B8 (an element of the site (4.05 hectares) is proposed in outline for B1 B2 and B8 use) with all matters reserved except for access (including vehicular, pedestrian and cycle links) and framework landscaping, with provision for the installation of drainage and services infrastructure was submitted, validated and registered on the 23rd December 2016.

It is envisaged Planning Permission will be obtained in Spring 2017.


The initial phase of the Eastern Relief Road (ERR) including the entrance roundabout into Suffolk Park is now completed, open and operational. The whole ERR is programmed to be open and operational by June 2017.

Suffolk Park’s main estate road will commence construction immediately after planning is obtained, with the aim of completion by December 2017.

Earliest Occupation

Individual planning applications for occupiers requirements can be submitted now since the outline application has been registered.
St Edmundsbury planners have confirmed that they will allow buildings to be constructed in parallel to the implementation of the Park’s infrastructure.
Assuming terms are agreed quickly, this therefore means occupiers could achieve occupation of a new building by early 2018.

Suffolk Park is proud to have secured Enterprise Zone status on 35 acres of land in conjunction with West Suffolk and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.

Occupiers relocating to the Enterprise Zone benefit from;

  • Business rates savings up to a maximum of £275,000 (over 5yrs)
  • Fast tracked planning for a simpler build programme
  • Access to Super Fast Broadband
