Planning permission has been granted for the next stage of a major new housing development in Bury St Edmunds.
Bloor Homes has secured approval to build 198 homes at land off Tut Hill – around three miles north west of Bury’s town centre.
The homes will form the second phase of Bloor Homes’ Marham Park development, which is part of a wider scheme to comprise up to 1,070 homes from four developers, a local centre, retail and health facilities and green open space.
Of the 198 new homes, 124 will be sold privately on the open market, while 74 will be provided as affordable housing.
Construction will start in March.

“We are pleased that planning officers have recognised the benefits of the development, and we look forward to starting construction work on the first homes in March.”
