JUST over two years since a public inquiry into the Waveney Campus project first began, leading figureheads this week admitted they remained “committed” to the £52.7m development.

Their backing comes in the midst of Waveney District Council's financial uncertainty and the national economic downturn.

But this week, the project partners revealed there is no threat to the landmark office and scientific complex for Lowestoft.

The flagship project, proposed for Riverside Road, would see a landmark administrative and state-of-the-art scientific complex to house 1,000 staff from the Centre for the Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Sciences (Cefas), Waveney District Council and Suffolk County Council.

“Planning consent was granted on the project earlier this year and discussions are ongoing between the project partners regarding financing in light of the issues currently faced by Waveney,” the district council's communications manager, Phil Harris, said.

“The partners remain fully committed and there is no threat to the project.”
