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.
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.
