Street Farm proposal

Over the past few months surveyors have been seen on several occasions on this site, and some weeks ago rumours began to circulate about a large housing development. A limited amount of detail has now been confirmed.

The proposal by Hopkins Homes is for 450 dwellings, with some commercial property and a retail development. There would be a road through the site linking Bury Road (from a junction near Wrights Way) to the A14 interchange north of Woolpit. There would be public green spaces, and there is the potential for a school site.

These details were given at the Parish Council meeting on 3 October, in a report on preliminary talks between the developer and some parish councillors. At present Hopkins Homes have no plans for a public consultation, as they are currently discussing matters with Mid Suffolk District Council and Suffolk County Council.
