Developers behind two proposed schemes in Bury St Edmunds got the nod from the borough council last night as their masterplans were adopted.

The plans involve proposals to build around 300 new homes on Station Hill and to create 400 extra car parking spaces at West Suffolk Hospital.

Hopkins Homes’ planning application - submitted in December 2013 - for the first phase of the Station Hill development can now be considered.

Robert Eburne, the firm’s planning manager, said: “As developer, we say it’s beneficial for the town, clears up an area everybody recognises needs resolving, is an attractive development and we’re looking forward to making a start on it.”

The hospital will now be able to bring forward interim planning applications while it makes a decision on whether or not to move.
