Plans to build over 170 homes near Bury St Edmunds have been submitted. 

Linden Homes, part of the Vistry Group, want to deliver the extra 171 new homes at its Cavendish View site in Thurston. 

The property developers have already begun construction work on the first phase of 87 properties at the development, which is located on land to the north of Norton Road.

If the new plans are approved by Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils, a further 108 properties for private sale and 63 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership will be built on a 28.5-acre site.

Jason Colmer, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Eastern, said: “These are exciting plans for more houses on our site at Cavendish View.
