Suffolk-based enterprise agency Menta has unveiled plans for expansion and refurbishment at its main managed business centre in Haverhill.

A rengeration of the site at 21-27 Hollands Road will include the addition of four new units, bringing the total to 32, along with a new reception area, a coffee shop and support facilities.

The project, being undertaken by Menta in partnership with St Edmundsbury Borough Council, will also see the creation of new dedicated centre co-ordinator job.
