Outline plans to build 200 homes in Halesworth have been given the green light.
Christchurch Land and Estates Ltd had submitted outline plans in September last year for 200 homes in land off Chediston Street.
Waveney District Council’s planning committee met on Tuesday night where the plans were approved.
It includes 70 affordable homes and contributions to a new pre-school, extension of a 30mph speed limit in Chediston Street and other improvements.
Richard Brown from Richard Brown Planning on behalf of Christchurch, said: “We are pleased with the outcome, and that this site being allocated means we can now make an immediate contribution to the land supply in the district.”
The land was last month allocated by Waveney for housing in the final draft local plan.

It added that it would be an integrated community with a “sensitive relationship to the existing settlement and countryside setting”.
