A controversial blueprint for growth which includes plans for 5,900 homes in the Bury St Edmunds area has been submitted for consideration to the Government.
St Edmundsbury Borough Council has sent the Vision 2031 documents to Eric Pickles, secretary of state for communities and local government.
Independent inspector Roger Clews is due to lead a public examination of the plans next spring and decide whether they are ‘sound’.
It follows two rounds of public consultation on the documents.
Concerns were raised about impacts on the town’s roads and transport infrastructure.
