Freeport East offers sites for early development and occupation by prospective tenants. The first phase of Freeport East Felixstowe already has planning consent and a planning application has been submitted for Freeport East Gateway 14. Both sites are expected to be ready for development immediately upon formal designation of the Freeport.

The necessary applications for the development of Freeport East Harwich will be submitted shortly to allow developments to begin onsite in 2023.
