Plans to change building at Jubilee Farm in Great Barton into Pink Radish shop submitted to West Suffolk Council





Plans have been submitted to build an organic farm shop in Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds.

The owner of Jubilee Farm hopes to convert an existing building into the shop, which would be called the Pink Radish.

In the change of use application received by West Suffolk Council, Mike Long said the shop will sell organic produce grown on the farm and other products from across Suffolk and East Anglia.

If approved the Pink Radish would open in a small stable-like building which connects to the main barn at the farm, in Vicarage Farm Lane.

The central stable-style door would be replaced with a double glazed timber frame floor-to ceiling-window.

On the west side of the building an original sliding door would be re-hung and another timber framed window, installed.

The application also includes the creation of an additional 18 car parking spaces.

In the application Mr Long said: “We would like to use the 'yard extension' just south of the main barn as a car park for the farm shop.

“Access to the shop ideally comes from the farm track/bridleway from Mill Road (B1106). We have submitted an application to Suffolk Highways to seek their advise on this proposal.”

The application to change the use of a timber yard to a farm shop was received by the council in April.

It was validated on Wednesday and will now be considered.
