More new homes proposed in Elmswell
Another 75 new homes could be built in Elmswell, bringing the total of dwellings in the village already approved or awaiting approval to more than 800.
The latest proposal is for land to the west of the former bacon factory.
Armstrong Rigg Planning has submitted a request for screening option to Mid Suffolk District Council planners on behalf of Harrow Estates Plc, prior to the submission of a formal outline planning application.
The 2.1 hectare site is alongside a plot currently being developed for 190 dwellings by Taylor Wimpey, while the railway line runs immediately along the south of the site.
It is proposed the new development would be accessed at two points via a continuation of a circular road network on the Taylor Wimpey development.
Elsewhere in the village, planning applications already approved or under way include 60 homes off Borley Crescent, 240 homes on land adjacent to Wetherden Road, 38 homes on land east of Warren Lane and west of Cresmedow Way and 106 dwellings on land east of Ashfield Road.
A planning application for 105 homes on land at School Road is currently pending determination.
