Food Enterprise Zones

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils have two Food Enterprise Zones.

One is in Wherstead and is called the Orwell Food Enterprise Zone

The other is at the Gateway 14 Business Park in Stowmarket and is called the Stowmarket Enterprise Park

These areas can benefit from Local Development Orders, that help with building new premises for food or drink businesses.

There is currently a Local Development Order (LDO) to cover: 

Jimmy's Farm

Pannington Hall Lane



The LDO runs from 3 October 2016 to 2 October 2021. 

This LDO sets out:

  • A statement of reasons for making the LDO
  • A description of the types of development permitted
  • Plans details the area to which the LDO relates
