An application has been made to bring up to 73 park homes to the Great Bricett Business Park site, near Wattisham.
The seven-acre site, in the centre of Great Bricett, already has outline planning permission for up to 51 dwellings, including 35% affordable housing.
However, Birch Park Homes has put in an application to site up to 73 prefabricated bungalows on the site instead, each with a single car parking space. The site would be landscaped, and access would be via the existing site access.
The application says the existing Nissen hut-style buildings on the site, most of which pre-date 1945, would be demolished. It adds: "The units have recently been vacated, and there are no current plans for their reoccupation."
The application says: "The proposed modular bungalows represent a low-cost form of housing which can be sold in a way which is compatible with affordable housing."
