Local information

  • The Port of Felixstowe is the United Kingdom's busiest container port, dealing with 42% of Britain's containerised trade. In 2011, it was ranked as the 35th busiest container port in the world and Europe's sixth busiest.
  • Accordingly the town benefits from good transport infrastructure links to the County Town of Ipswich to the west, and to Cambridge and the Midlands beyond via the A14 trunk road. Ipswich is approximately 17.5 km (10.87 mi) northwest of Felixstowe and London is approximately 148 km (92 mi) southwest of
  • Felixstowe by road with a journey time of approx. 2 hours.
  • Felixstowe has seen a high level of investment over the last few years, which has led to the renovation of the resort’s award-winning seafront gardens, creation of a new beachside park, reopening of the Spa Pavilion and the multi-million pound rebuilding of the new pier head, which has in turn led to the resort growing in popularity.

Additional information

  • The site has been granted detailed planning permission subject to a section 106 agreement (Ref: DC/17/3967/ful).
  • The proposed development comprises the erection of a 6 storey building consisting of 3 commercial units at ground floor level and 48 apartments above, together with the erection of a terrace of 4 town houses fronting Beach Station Road and the erection of a terrace of 7 town houses fronting Micklegate Road. The commercial units at ground floor are expected to be used as restaurants or for leisure related
  • purposes. The proposed development does not include affordable housing; in lieu of this however, a commuted sum of £350,000 is to be paid as part of the s106 obligation. We have had sight of a phase 1 ground survey which concludes that there is a Low/Moderate risk to the site and future occupants from Contamination. Furthermore the potential on-site and off-site sources of contamination represent a Low risk to groundwater.
