An application to develop the land of a former Suffolk pork factory has been recommended for approval.

The land in Elmswell near Woolpit could become 65 new homes with the possibility of a road and public open space, if approved.

The land is to the west of Hall Lane in the village, where the former Grampian Foods factory was.

The factory closed in 2006, leaving nearly 250 employees without jobs.

The original application was made by developer Harrow Estates, with the outline planning application granted in January 2021.

Some 51 public comments were made on the online planning portal, all of which made objections to the application.

Objections raised include the lack of parking for residents living in the area, concern that a nearby children's play park would be affected by the construction site, as well as the increased demand on services and added pollution.

The application will go before the Mid Suffolk Development Control Committee B on Wednesday, February 1.
