Overview

A short drive from the busy market town of Newmarket, the home of UK horseracing, Kings Warren Business Park borders the Kings Warren housing development and sits north of the established village of Red Lodge. With direct access to the A11, it offers a simple route to Cambridge, Norwich and beyond. Kennett railway station, with connections to Cambridge and Ipswich, is just three miles away.

This predominantly greenfield site of grade four agricultural land is bordered by fields in arable use separated by pine belts. A distribution warehouse is currently located in the centre of the site, while electricity, gas, water and telecommunications infrastructure are all present.

Opportunity

Designated in the emerging local plan as a mixed-use site for eight hectares of employment land, 300 dwellings and a new primary school, Kings Warren is an exciting opportunity to shape a vibrant community of the future. Precise numbers and the distribution of uses and access arrangements will be informed by a detailed masterplan for this site.
