The land in Kesgrave off Bell Lane which could be part of a 300-home development.

Consultation deadlines for two developments which would provide 515 new homes have been changed because of the Christmas period.

Suffolk Coastal said people now have until 9am on Monday, January 18 to submit written representations about the projects.

Persimmon Homes has submitted plans for 300 homes and a primary school east of Bell Lane, Kesgrave, while Gladman Developments has applied to build 215 homes off Top Street, Martlesham, at the back of Dukes Park, Woodbridge.

Persimmon Homes’ scheme was first put forward at a public exhibition two years ago and the company said the redrafted proposals sought to address concerns raised by residents over traffic and education issues.

Gladman Developments said the site on the border of Woodbridge and Martlesham offers the “logical extension” of the town, helping to satisfy the “increasing need” for housing in the district.
