The site of a former fertiliser factory site with permission for 85 homes in Ipswich has been put up for sale. 

The former Norsk Hydro site off Sandyhill Lane in Ipswich has stood derelict for more than 30 years.

Ipswich Borough Council’s planning committee granted permission to build 85 homes on the 11.1 acre site in 2019.

The land is now on sale with property experts Savills and Avison Young.

Thomas Higgins, from the development team at Savills in Suffolk, said: “The site has an extant permission for a supermarket, however there was limited interest for this use and Ipswich Borough Council subsequently granted planning permission for 85 homes.

“The site represents a significant opportunity for residential development and enjoys an elevated position in a key area of Ipswich to the east of the town centre.

"It has been derelict for several years but there is now every chance to bring it back into use and provide much needed new homes.”
