There is significant potential to build on the existing industrial activities at Snetterton Heath in Norfolk, including engineering, manufacturing and automotive centred around the well established Snetterton Racing Circuit. These sectors represent an important element of the area’s economy with additional automotive activity close by at Hethel (Lotus Cars, Hethel Engineering). Snetterton also houses significant logistics and distribution operations with its own rail head and established contacts to businesses regionally, nationally and internationally.
Snetterton Heath is excellently located with direct access onto the A11 dual carriageway to Norwich, Cambridge, Stansted Airport and London and benefits as a designated key site within the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor. The land owners and local council are working collaboratively to increase electricity power capacity at the site.
The major landowners at Snetterton are working in partnership to provide opportunities for land purchase, leasehold, ‘design and build’ and Joint Venture options. The site has an estimated 68.1 hectares of underdeveloped employment land with a further 20 hectares proposed for allocation through the Local Plan review. It has been estimated that the site has the capacity to deliver 200,000 sq m of B1, B2 and B8 employment space. There is potential and demand to justify a hotel development alongside the significant technology focused development opportunities.
