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.
