From Monday 4th January the public is invited to give their views about a proposed housing development sites on land majority-owned by the county council. The development would be built on land to the west of Mildenhall either side of West Row Road.
Up to 1,300 homes could be built as part of the West Suffolk Council Site Allocations Local Plan (2019).
The public consultation is being held to gain the views of local residents on the initial proposals for the site including areas for development, access and movement for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, green spaces and key design principles. The consultation is being held virtually due to the coronavirus restrictions, will run for 6 weeks.
Speaking about the consultation, Cllr. Nick Gowrley, Cabinet member for Housing said – “Since SCC launched our new approach to housing in 2019, we have emphasised again and again the importance of working with local communities and stakeholders on developing plans which work for them and add real social value to their communities. Therefore, I believe it is absolutely vital that as many local people as possible use this consultation as an opportunity to have their say about these proposals.”
There will be further opportunities for the public to have their say later in 2021 when the final masterplans are published, and beyond this, when planning applications are submitted.
