Campaigners seeking to raise millions of pounds to protect some of Suffolk’s most treasured landscapes have appointed two legal experts as consultants for the project.

Peter Start from Savills an Martin Whitworth from Gotelee Solicitors will work with the Alde and Ore Estuary Partnership (AOEP) on its “enabling development” proposals.

The scheme seeks to develop homes on land that would not normally be allocated for such purposes, in recognition of the benefits it will bring the community.

The AOEP is looking to develop 15-17 homes on sites donated by formers and landowners near to the estuary, to raise around £5m for its protection.

AOEP chairman Sir Edward Greenwell said “I am delighted that Peter Start and Martin Whitworth have joined our team and we look forward to progressing potential sites with them.”
