Plans have been submitted for four new homes in a mid-Suffolk village.

The proposals seek to establish a pair of semi-detached two-storey houses and two bungalows on the southern side of Palmer Street in Walsham-le-Willows.

The site is currently open land connected with a house known as The Maltings.

The semi-detached dwellings would consist of two bedrooms and, according to planning documents, would be "entry-level homes attractive to younger households and those looking to downsize".

The other properties are three-bedroom and four-bedroom bungalows "which have been designed to be suitable for older residents or residents with reduced mobility".

A pre-application meeting was undertaken between the applicant and members of the Walsham-le-Willows Parish Council.

According to proposal documents, the Parish Council members were "positive regarding the style and mix of houses proposed as well as the density and layout of the site."

A planning statement submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council concluded: "This application proposes four well-designed houses which will meet the identified local housing need within Walsham-le-Willows while respecting the character of the surrounding area."
