Plans to turn a redundant storage building in Sudbury into four homes haveĀ been submitted to Babergh District Council.

The scheme, proposed by Barry Drury Investments, would see a storage building to the rear of Gaol Lane, Sudbury, turned in to four two-bedroom homes.

The planning statement for the project, prepared by Ben Elvin planning consultancy, says: "It is well established that the housing need in the Babergh district is primarily for smaller houses and for accommodation suitable for the elderly.

"There are now limited opportunities to deliver modest housing of this form in a location that is as accessible as this, and the new housing proposed would offer access to a range of facilities and services on foot.

"The proposal ensures the reuse of a redundant building and provides modest units of accommodation in what is a mixed use area."
