Consultation on new masterplan to develop long vacant land on outskirts of Bury town centre
A developer has launched a consultation over plans to regenerate long vacant land on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds town centre.
Pigeon is looking for residents’ views about a new masterplan to develop approximately 13 acres of land along Tayfen Road and Springfield Road.
The masterplan includes new homes, a care home and commercial uses such as a foodstore and family pub.
An outline planning application for part of the land was submitted to St Edmundsbury Borough Council earlier this year for 215 homes and a 60 bed care home.
A public exhibition will be held on Monday, October 5 from 12.30pm at the Quaker Meeting House, in St John’s Street, where residents can comment on the proposals.
Hugh French, project manager at Pigeon, said: “Pigeon have been working with St Edmundsbury Borough Council to create the proposals for the new masterplan. It is a key area for regeneration on the outskirts of the town centre and the masterplan will help shape the vision for the future of the Tayfen Road area. We previously held an exhibition for the planning application earlier this year, but this exhibition focuses on the wider masterplan area which includes the gas works owned by National Grid.”
