Councillors are to consider blueprints for growth on Station Hill in Bury St Edmunds and at West Suffolk Hospital which would create 400 extra parking spaces.

The masterplan for Station Hill by developer Hopkins Homes includes proposals for about 300 homes, new areas of public open space and a ‘high quality Station Square to create a new gateway’ into the town.

The homes would be built in phases and a planning application for 135 one and two bedroom apartments has already been submitted and will be determined once the masterplan is approved.

Robert Eburne, planning manager for Hopkins, said: “The masterplan creates a framework for the approval of planning applications which will achieve a comprehensive, phased and high quality development over the coming years.”

Meanwhile, the masterplan for West Suffolk Hospital outlines the potential for 400 extra parking spaces.

A lack of parking spaces has been an ongoing issue around the site.

Cllr Sarah Stamp said: “I see this as good news for staff, visitors and patients alike but also for residents who live around the area of the hospital and who have experienced frequent problems due to on-road parking outside their homes by hospital users.”

A meeting of the full council will consider the plans on July 7.
