Wherstead Office Park is a substantial employment location on the southern edge of Ipswich, close to the A14. Lying within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB, the sites mix of historic and modern buildings offer a unique environment of high quality office space in a rural location.
Adopted in February 2008, the Wherstead Office Park Planning Position Statement (PPS) provides (non statutory) supplementary guidance in relation to the future use and development of the site. The key objectives for the site are: to retain the site for employment purposes, to comprehensively address the sites future and, to safeguard the future of the historic buildings and structures on and around the site and the AONB through appropriate management.
The content of the PPS should be read in conjunction with the Babergh Core Strategy (2014), in particular Policy CS9.
