A bungalow in a west Suffolk village could be demolished and replaced with four family homes in fresh plans put to a council after a previous five-home proposal was refused on the grounds of overdevelopment. 

The exisiting bungalow at Cherry Tree Gardens in Beck Row, near Mildenhall, would be removed and replaced with four new four-bedroom homes and associated garages, parking spaces, bin and bike storage. 

This is a fresh application after plans for five homes at the site were refused by West Suffolk Council on September 11 when officers found the development would be "cramped and contrived" and "overbearing" on nearby properties. 

In a statement on behalf of the applicant to West Suffolk Council, the proposed houses are described as being "consistent with the character and appearance of the area".

It is said the development of the homes would "help to create a coherent street scene in Cherry Tree Gardens without the incongruous bungalow". 

The  homes would be complete with brick facing, an open plan kitchen/dining area, a living room, a utility room, a WC, a bathroom, a study and four bedrooms, one with an en suite.
