Plans for a commercial development, which had been criticised for showing ‘very little ambition’, got the go-ahead last week.

Mid Suffolk District Council has granted applicant Atex Developments Ltd permission to build six commercial buildings on a vacant site south of Gun Cotton Way, Stowmarket.

The buildings will house up to 37 freehold units which will have the ability to join together to form larger business premises.

The Stowmarket Society had objected to the scheme’s design and potential to create untidy sites within a ‘very prominent’, ‘semi-residential’ setting.
