Braintree District Council bought the 65 acre site with a vision of attracting new businesses into the district, potentially creating up to 2,000 jobs.

Balfour Beatty is taking the lead on building two access roads and a central spine road on the business park site.

The planning for an entrance off Cuckoo Way roundabout, a second access point from the A131 to the south and a central spine road was given the green light at a Planning Committee meeting in February.

The business park will offer business accommodation, energy efficient buildings and electric vehicle charging points. A central hub area to the north could be home to retail units, a restaurant and a childcare facility.

Cllr John McKee, Cabinet Member for Corporation Transformation at Braintree District Council, said: “I am delighted that we are now embarking on one of the largest and most exciting projects in our district.

“This is an investment that will benefit residents and businesses and our local economy. The modern employment facilities and the park’s ideal location near the A120 will make Horizon 120 the place to do business now and in the future.”
