Chaldean Properties bought the 5.85 acre site in South Beach Parade last March. It lies within the South Denes industrial zone next to the Outer Harbour. Last year land in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, including the Chaldean site in the South Denes industrial zone, was given enterprise zone status, which includes business rate relief, simplified planning regulations and superfast broadband.

Jack-up vessel firm Seajacks was the first company to move into a new headquarters with a warehouse and yard space. Garry Ellis, Chaldean’s development manager said the company now had a further 3.2 acres which could accommodate about 60,000 sq ft of further development.

He said: “Due to its prime location we are confident the entire development will be completed within the next few years which will be great news for us and for the Great Yarmouth economy.”

  • Why would IPH own land next to a power station? And 'V' just because you don't know about something doesn't make it a secret deal. Do you always monitor land for sale in GY? Or do you never look, and that's why you never saw it for sale? I would assume that the land next to the power station may have been sold as surplus by the power station? And bought by a legit developer who could see the potential in it. Why would it be underhand? Just because you want it to be, so you can post negative comments about it?

  • Exactly DT. Who did they buy the land from and was it theirs to sell in the first place or was it given to whoever sold it, like the old port etc ?. I suspect IPH had a hand in it somewhere This is where the council lies and deceit and lies come in to it. Perhaps the EDP would like to investigate but I am not holding my breath.

  • Why "V" - were you going to put a bid in? You really need to get out more. First to whinge on any article, about any subject matter, on this site. Becoming a bit predictable.

  • So DT obviously agrees with all the lies and deceit that infest Yarmouth, where the council decieves the people in the hope that no one will find out.

  • I always like reading the articles on here. Not more for their content, but for the guarantee that "V" has commented on them, with some derogative condescending comment about someone who's trying to make a go of something. In this case the privately owned Seajacks somehow being manipulated and offered back handers by a council. You never cease to amaze me. Can we have an article purely on "V" himself?

  • "V" - this story is about the boss of a private company wanting to lease or sell the land they have bought. I'm not clear where the "deceit" and "lies" are within this particular tale. The story doesn't elaborate as to who they bought the land from in the original instance.

  • There's a problem here Tom. It's called the road system. The roads would not be able to cope with all the extra traffic. Never mind. Just put the incinerator there. Since when has the council been concerned with peoples health. Another point. Why wasn't this land put for sale on the open market ?. or is this just another closed deal that it will take 30 years to uncover ?.
