SCOTT PROPERTIES - Proposed Development on Land off Red Lane
A Consultation Event was hosted by Scott Properties at which residents and the Parish Council were informed of a housing scheme of 450 dwellings plus employment land. The architect sketches provided at the event gave a vision of what was expected from the development, although in its early stages and subject to change.
This has since been increased to 521 new dwellings plus 5 hectares of light industrial units for employment. No further information has been received.
Highways produced a plan identifying the need for alterations to be made to the A12 should a development of this size be approved which involved the northbound sliproad being closed off by the Bypass Nurseries and a roundabout installed moving all vehicles, existing and new, down London Road to exit the village.
The Capel St Mary Parish Council has not previously been involved with developers taking the decision not to meet outside of public meetings, however due to the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan in which it is encouraged that there be open communication with developers the Parish Council has changed their approach and will now be open to discussions.
These meetings are in no way a pre-determination or approval of any application and we will continue to represent our residents as instructed with support from Planning Consultants where necessary. All views expressed are without prejudice.
We are advised a Planning Application is expected to be submitted to Babergh District Council by the end of the year.
All details are subject to change as this was an outline plan and only a suggestion of what could be expected.
