Plans have been submitted to build up to 28 new homes, with nine being affordable, in a Suffolk village.

An outline planning application has been submitted for the build of new homes in Mendlesham, on land off Old Station Road and Glebe Way.

The site the houses would be built on is allocated for housing in the new Neighbourhood Plan which came into affect November 2022.

There is another application which is pending currently, for the erection of 40 houses on the remainder of the land.

This proposal will provide up to 28 homes, nine affordable housing, and each will have a parking space.

As part of the plans, developer contributions have been outlined, with over £134,500 required for primary school expansion, £158,700 for secondary school expansion and £52,900 for sixth form expansion.

An extra £57,690 would be required for early years expansion, and £6,000 for libraries improvements.

Due to it being an outline application, scale, layout and appearance will be revealed at a later date, however, the development will consist of a mix of two-storey and single-storey houses.
