Overview

Drive business growth at Snetterton Heath, home of Snetterton race track, which hosts prestigious events in the British Superbikes, British Touring Car and British Truck Racing calendars.

A former RAF airbase, Snetterton Heath boasts a rich history, but the site is primed to service the businesses of the future.

Snetterton Heath benefits from:

  • A growing automotive cluster around the racetrack and its proximity to the world-famous Lotus headquarters at nearby Hethel
  • An established group of logistics and transport firms based on-site
  • A planned £3.4m electricity substation to increase power to the site
  • A dedicated rail head connecting to the main line between Norwich and Cambridge

Opportunity

As a business location

For businesses looking for new premises of any size, Snetterton Heath has the scale and flexibility to service your requirements, whether that is for office or industrial accommodation.  Options exist for land purchase, leasehold or a full ‘design and build’ service, so firms can specify what they need, either to own or lease.

Snetterton Heath is large enough to accommodate business clusters from a wide range of sectors, as part of a modern growing business park.

As an investment opportunity

The major landowners at Snetterton are able to offer 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 new Local Plan.  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.
