The Whisstocks development at Woodbridge has taken a step closer to completion after a meeting of Woodbridge Town Council.

Deeds which transferred ownership of some areas at the site to the town councli were signed by Mayor Clare Perkins.

These areas included The Heritage Building and the Longshed.

The former of these will be the new home of the Woodbridge museum, whilst the latter will be rented to the Woodbridge Riverside Trust.

Cllr Geoff Holdcroft said that the signing was a “milestone” for the project.

The scheme has been in development since 2011 and features a number of commercial, public and residential spaces in the formerly derelict dockyard.

Hopes had been that the development would open this summer but delays slowed down the completion.
