Plans have been submitted for six new homes in a mid-Suffolk village just outside Stowmarket.

The application - which has been put forward by the Diocese Of St Edmundsbury And Ipswich - would see the dwellings established on land just off Norwich Road in Little Stonham.

Design documents state five of the "well-proportioned family homes" would consist of three bedrooms, while the remaining unit would consist of four. 

If approved, the dwellings would benefit from a "generous garden" and "appropriate" parking spaces.

Provision for an electronic car charging point will also be made for each of the properties.

Block plans show every home within the residential development would feature a kitchen/dining area, a living room and a space for studying.

Pre-application advice received from Mid-Suffolk District Council in August stated the "housing development within the majority of the site indicated, within the settlement boundary and allocation proposed in the emerging development plan, is considered acceptable in principle."

The new application concluded that, with the "benefits from a broadly positive pre-application response, we believe it is appropriate that the proposed scheme for residential development should be supported by the Local Planning Authority."
