Plans for 28 new homes in Cockfield given green light




Plans for 28 new homes have been given the go ahead.

The homes, just under 40 per cent of which will be affordable, will be built on land to the rear of the Plough and Fleece Inn in Cockfield.

Original plans were submitted to Babergh District Council by The Sudbury Group back in October 2019.

However, concerns were raised by Cockfield Parish Council over the amount of houses that were to be built.

The number of homes planned to be built was reduced and settled on 28 and it was noted by the council in a meeting in February 2020 the 'continued willingness from the Developer to engage with the village to secure an amicable outcome.'

The new homes will be built on land covering 2.8 acres.
