Haven Gateway and Babergh District Council
The Haven Gateway Partnership based in East of England is working together with one of it's core partners, Babergh District Council to deliver the dryport Project and to investigate suitable sites within the Haven Gateway Sub-region that may be able to support the Ports and Logistics Sector locally. In summary;
The Haven Gateway sub-region
The Haven Gateway sub-region is based around one of the UK’s most important port clusters, including:
As such, the growth and infrastructure of the Haven Gateway are of regional, national and international importance, and critical to the UK’s economy.
The Haven Gateway Partnership was created in 2001, to provide a framework through which its partners – from both the public and private sectors – could work together to promote economic opportunities and secure the future prosperity of this international gateway to the UK.
Growth Point status in 2006 and the Partnership’s appointment of a Chief Executive in September 2007 signalled a step-change in the Partnership’s ambitions to deliver its vision, with a strong focus on sustainable growth and a broader remit – no longer centred solely on port expansion.
