Serious concerns have been raised over a development which could be approved in a village outside of Ipswich.

Residents of Tuddenham St Martin have raised objections to plans to build 25 new homes in Keightly Way, a street that has no dedicated parking for residents, no pedestrian access and dangerous vehicle access.

Existing residents living in the street have no off-road parking, meaning they all have to park their cars on the street.

This means that there is no passing places for vehicles, and tractors, lorries and vans often get stuck driving down the road.

Richard Ward, a resident, said: "It's a nightmare.

"We live at the top of the hill, there's no footway down there.

"The site in question for the development, which developers say meets all the local and national guidelines, has no footpath access to anywhere, so every journey will need to be by car.

"It really isn't feasible."

The plans, submitted to East Suffolk Council, have received 76 letters of representation – 75 of those being objections, including the parish council.

Other issues raised is the potential impact the development would have on traffic, fears junctions nearby are already dangerous and the existing on-street parking in Keightley Way causing an obstruction for construction traffic.

Bennett Homes and W&M Pipe, the developers, stated the plans would provide "much-needed housing, which will enable a positive impact upon the character and appearance of the surrounding built form of the village".

East Suffolk Council is recommending the application is approved, stating it is a "modest and proportionate addition of housing" and the "layout of the development is acceptable".

The local authority also stated that whilst it is noted that there is "significant local concern" with the highways, the Highways Agency did not object to the site.

Mr Ward added: "I just think it's ridiculous that they would say that it meets all the regulations despite there being an issue of safety."
