A Felixstowe-based company that planned to build an 85-space lorry park to ease pressure on the A14 has now withdrawn its application.

Prologic wanted to construct the site on land off the old A45 adjacent to the A14, as well as build a covered maintenance bay, offices, drivers’ mess, security fencing, CCTV and site lighting.

It said the lorry park for its fleet of HGVs would relieve pressure on the A14 if Operation Stack was rolled out in Suffolk.

However, its planning application attracted a number of objections from villagers, who believed it would ruin the countryside.

Suffolk County Council Highways also lodged an objection, claiming it would generate a significant number of HGV movements onto an A14 junction with a substandard length on its slip road and that inadequate information has been supplied about traffic.

But in a letter published on East Suffolk Council’s planning portal earlier this week it confirmed that the application had now been withdrawn.

No-one from Prologic, which holds a licence authorising 56 HGVs out of three depots, was available for comment.
