Plans to build two new homes and convert a former chapel into a holiday let in a Suffolk town have been revealed.

The proposals seek to establish the dwellings on land behind 50 Church Street in Eye. 

The site is located to the north of Eye Castle and lies within the Eye Conservation Area.

Each new home would be two-storey in height and consist of a kitchen and lounge/dining room on the ground floor alongside two bedrooms, a bathroom and en-suite on the first floor.

The holiday let would be established in a building resting against the base of the castle motte that is believed to have formerly been used as a small chapel of rest. 

If approved, it would comprise of a bedroom and a shower room at ground floor level, with an open plan kitchen, dining and living room area located on the first floor.

Pre-application advice received from Mid Suffolk District Council found the proposal to be acceptable in principle, but officers concluded further investigations into the site and discussions with organisations such as Historic England could result in planning constraints.
