Taylor Wimpey is to hold a public exhibition of its plans to build 550 homes on land at Moreton Hall in Bury St Edmunds.

The exhibition takes place on Tuesday (23) between 2pm and 8pm at The Flying Fortress pub in Mount Road.

The plans include a secondary school, a local centre and public open space.

An outline planning application for the development known as Lark Grange will be submitted to St Edmundsbury Borough Council later this year.

Mark Edmonds, Planning and Technical Director for Taylor Wimpey, said: “St Edmundsbury Borough Council has identified the land as a key development site to help it meet its target to deliver new homes, key infrastructure and employment in the borough by 2031

“Before we submit an outline planning application for the site, plus the detailed application for Lark Grange, we would like local people, businesses, community groups and stakeholders to find out more and let us know what they think about the scheme.”

The site, which is located to the east of Moreton Hall and bordered by Rougham Airfield, is identified as a key growth area in the borough council’s Vision 2031 Local Planning Document.

The plans include a mix of one to five bed homes, a children’s play area, and park.
