The 68.1 hectare site at Snetterton Heath, Norfolk has the potential to house hundreds of people within the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor, however up until now a lack of power to the site has hampered growth. Today Breckland Council’s planning committee approved a bid to build a new £3.4m substation to be built adjacent to the Snetterton Renewable Energy Plant. It is hoped the substation will provide an additional six-mega-volt amps (MVA) to Snetterton Heath an unlock the site for businesses to expand and attracting new employment opportunities to the site.
"As we are seeking to grow our automotive business in Norfolk, the development of Technology Park combined with the link to the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor can only strengthen our local position which we welcome"
