A delay in the building of Haverhill Research Park’s Epicentre has come from the Government.

Nic Rumsey, director of Jaynic, the company that is developing the research park, said: “The reality is that the delay has come from the Government.

“The LEPs couldn’t have been more helpful. There is a grant and loan available from government and the LEPs and we are working closely with the LEPs to agree the final details.

“However, because of the delay from the Government, the project has been put back longer than anticipated and has therefore delayed the whole process.

“We hope to soon confirm that a final timetable for delivery of the project has been put in place.”

It had been hoped that work would begin soon and that parts of the Epicentre could be completed in 2015 with the creation of up to 300 jobs.

The development will offer a range of space sizes, from 170 sq ft to 7,000 sq ft, together with conference and meeting rooms, training facilities and a ‘work-hub’ area for shared working.

The Epicentre will provide the focal point for the research park that will draw together businesses and commerce with the wider community.
