A former breaker's yard is set to be turned into four "expensive" homes after planning permission was granted by Babergh District Council.

The plans for the four, four-bed detached properties with garages were submitted by Brettenham Estate LTD, on the old breaker's yard off Old School Corner, Brettenham, west of Stowmarket.

The Babergh planning officer's report on the project says: "In conclusion, the site still allows a linear development that scores significantly in environmental, economic and social/residential amenity gains.

"The development would not extend the built form and forms a logical natural extension of the existing cluster. Furthermore, the development would be on previous use land, the environmental harm of such development is considered to be better than the development of land not previously developed.

"Each plot is spacious and these will be expensive houses regardless if they were two-bed or five-bed given the plot size and location."
