Outline planning permission has been granted for logistics, manufacturing, offices and Research and Development buildings of various sizes across the 156 acre site. 25.3 acres of the site is designated for landscaping and amenity use.
Gateway 14 is part of Freeport East, a new low tax zone that will help it to become a hub for global trade and investment, promote regeneration and job creation and create and sustain innovation, which is supported by the incentives available to occupiers as well as various funding opportunities. Freeport East hopes to create up to 13,500 jobs for the area over 10 years, with 3,000 jobs at Gateway 14 alone. Gateway 14 is designed with sustainability at its core, with the buildings including features such as EV charging, rainwater harvesting and smart energy systems as standard. It will feature high-quality landscaping and an enhanced biodiversity zone, to retain the site’s thriving ecology whilst creating a vibrant, attractive and healthy working environment for employees.

Gateway 14 is just off the A14, one of the principal trunk routes for UK logistics offering access from the Port of Felixstowe into the heart of the UK, and also a primary route for export to European and world markets. The site is 26 miles from the Port of Felixstowe, 12.5 miles to Ipswich and the A12, and 45 miles to M11 and links to Cambridge. The existing ‘Cedars roundabout’ on the A1120 will provide ideal access into the site.
