Jaynic has submitted a hybrid planning application for its proposed 91-acre Stanton Business Park on the former RAF airfield at Shepherds Grove on the A143 near Stanton, Suffolk.

The application, submitted to West Suffolk Council, comprises an application for a new roundabout on the A143 giving direct access to Stanton Business Park, a new regional hub to be occupied by Copart UK and an outline application for four additional development plots that will provide opportunities for commercial and roadside uses

If approved, work could commence as soon as this summer.

Copart has agreed to purchase 68-acres, subject to planning, to create its largest centre in the UK, as part of a major expansion programme to meet continued and growing demand from its customers.

Jaynic director, Andrew Anderson, said: “We are very pleased to be bringing forward the Stanton Business Park planning application for employment uses, which accords with the allocation in the adopted West Suffolk Local Plan. 

“As part of the scheme, we will provide an alternative and direct connection to the A143 for the businesses at Shepherds Grove West industrial estate. This will help provide relief to Stanton from the commercial and HGV traffic that currently routes through the village. We also look forward to delivering additional employment opportunities via the four sites that will become available for occupiers, which are capable of accommodating buildings of between 17,500 – 70,000 sq ft,”

Savills and Hazells are marketing agents for the scheme.
