Maltings plans

Have your say

HAVEBURY Housing Partnership has reapplied for planning permission to build 35 affordable homes at the Old Maltings, in Mildenhall Road, Bury St Edmunds.

St Edmundsbury Borough Council approved the housing scheme in October but it has been on hold since because of a land dispute between the freehold owners of the maltings and the neighbouring UPS parcel service, which owns the freehold for part of the road.

That has restricted access to the maltings site – now Havebury and building firm Baker Construction has submitted another planning application with new access arrangements, in a bid to get the scheme moving.
