Bringing Forward Homes For Sudbury


Catesby Estates plc remain committed to bringing much needed new homes to Sudbury, with the price of a home in Sudbury being 11.5% more expensive that the UK average*. 

The proposals by Catesby Estates, includes 46 new affordable homes, enabling young Sudbury families and first time buyers struggling to get onto the housing ladder find a new home within their financial needs.

The planning application for 130 new homes on land 1 mile north east of Sudbury town centre is pending consideration.   The site is in the adopted Babergh Core Strategy (Policy CS4), and forms part of the ‘Chilton Woods Strategic Allocation’ which has been allocated since 2006 for mixed use development of approximately 1,050 dwellings, employment space and community facilities.

In addition to new homes there will be landscaped public open space, play area, community orchard and a green corridor running through the site providing a haven for local wildlife.

Ed Barrett, Senior Planning Manager for Catesby Estates said; “ We have listened to local residents, and have amend our application to include a 10 – 15m landscape buffer fronting Waldingfield Road, which will entirely screen the new housing once fully established.  This will help ensure the experience of Chilton Hall and its Registered Park and Garden to the south east remains unchanged.”

“A two storey only zone within the southern end of the site, along with increased vegetation across the proposed development, will further reduce the potential visibility of the homes from the wider landscape.  An avenue of trees and structured planting is also proposed to further soften the development, and add character to the entrance by echoing the tree lined avenue that forms the approach to the Registered Park and Garden.”
