Attract investment to develop key sites

We’ve identified a number of vacant, underused, undeveloped and redundant sites – any one of which can lead to significant benefits for the town, its businesses and its people if given the appropriate investment.

The sites are all earmarked for development in local plans, and in some cases already benefit from planning permission or extended permitted development rights.

These strategic plots have all been listed in a site development prospectus called Invest in Suffolk, which we published in June 2016.

This brochure is used by the Vision partners to proactively attract national and international investment online and through direct contact with developers.

For example, a team from the New Anglia LEP showcased these prime sites at the MIPIM 18 show in London, a four-day real estate exhibition and conference gathering 24,000 international property professionals.
