A drop in consultation event will be held next week so member of the public can have their say on a significant development in a Suffolk village.

Nearly 300 homes could be built on a site of Redwald Road in the village of Rendlesham if planning permission is given.

A public exhibition was held last July to inform residents of the developers’ ideas.

An application for outline planning permission on the site was sent in December with a formal consultation closing on February 12 this year.

Responders to the consultation included the RSPB who were concerned about the potential impact of the site on local special protection areas.
