Land developer, Morston Assets, wants to create offices and industrial units on nearly 30 hectares of farmland near King’s Lynn, England
KING’S LYNN: Planners to decide fate of business park Published on Saturday 1 December 2012 09:00
A business park which could create more than 2,000 jobs has been recommended for approval.
Morston Assets wants to create offices and industrial units on nearly 30 hectares of farmland near Lynn’s Hardwick roundabout.
West Norfolk Council’s planning committee has been recommended to approve the application at a meeting on Monday.
The company wants to build on land between the Pinguin Latosa factory and the King’s Reach estate.
The application site, which covers 26 hectares, would include office space, light and general industrial space along with storage and distribution units.
A report to the committee meeting states: “The principle of development is supported by development plan policies and would support one of the key points of the overall development strategy for Lynn, which aims to provide at least 3,000 new jobs on this and other sites.”
Norfolk County Council has asked for a £237,500 bond against the failure of the travel plan, which promotes public transport.
The report states that this condition makes it “more difficult to deliver the site.”
