Mid Suffolk District Council has pledged £40,000 towards exploring eco-friendly options for the development of a planned new 156-acre business park off the A14.
The council and the Greater South East Energy Hub have committed the funding to explore low and zero carbon initiatives for Gateway 14, which is set to be built off junction 50 of the A14 near Stowmarket.
Gateway 14 Ltd, which is fronting the project, has said it will use the cash to hire a specialist to investigate low-carbon opportunities for the site.
