Taylor Wimpey's massive 31 acre, 500-home Lark Grange estate, south of Mount Road, has been in development for several years, with the first two phases creating 180 new homes.

It has now started phases three, four and five of the project, which will provide a mixture of two-bedroom, three-bedroom, four-bedroom and five-bedroom homes next to picturesque Suffolk countryside.

The final three parts of the development were given the go-ahead by West Suffolk Council's planning committee in July last year.

The housebuilder believes the new homes will be much sought-after, citing their proximity to amenities such as restaurants, shops and leisure facilities.
