Plans have been submitted for more than 50 new homes near Debenham.

Developer Hopkins & Moore has applied for permission to build 54 homes on a field on the northern edge of the Suffolk village. The application was submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council on Thursday May 20.

Located to the east of Aspall Road (B1077), 19 of the properties will be affordable while there will be parking spaces for 127 cars and 54 bikes. 

According to documents submitted as part of the application nearly half a hectare of community space will be created on the 2.5 hectare site.

The properties will be arranged around a cul-de-sac with an access being created from the south-west corner of the site on to Aspall Road.
