A giant warehouse on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds has been given the thumbs up by planners.
Developer Jaynic has been given detailed consent to build an 870,00sq ft logistics facility for the Weerts Group.
The Belgian-based logistics operation signed up for its first location in the UK to be built at Suffolk Park. The building - on a 42 acre site - is scheduled for completion in summer 2021.
Jaynic development boss Ben Oughton praised West Suffolk Council for its "highly positive approach" to the project. "It is an outstanding effort by all, and enables us to appoint a contractor in the very near future,” he said.
Weerts, which is based in Liège, has operations in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Hungary and Romania through its General Logistics Division.

Council leader John Griffiths said the council's hard work to bring millions of pounds of investment to Suffolk Park was "really paying off".
