A developer has launched a bid to build nine homes in Worlingworth.

Springfield Residential has submitted proposals to Mid Suffolk District Council seeking permission for the scheme on land south-west of Pipers Meadow and Old Stores Close.

The half-hectare of farmland in the village is currently vacant.

As well as the homes, the developer has proposed constructing a new access road to the site from Pipers Meadow.

Planning documents submitted alongside the proposals said the scheme would involve a mixture of two, three and four bedroom homes, creating 26 parking spaces.
