A rescheduled planning inquiry into 300 homes off Bell Lane in Kesgrave is set to take place in late spring or early summer.

Applicant Persimmon Homes had its plans to create 300 homes on land off Bell Lane and Foxhall Road rejected, prompting an appeal to be lodged.

It was heard in August last year before being dismissed in October.

A month later Persimmon lodged a legal challenge to the way the decision had been reached, resulting in the secretary of state confirming errors were made.

The Planning Inspectorate has now advised Kesgrave Town Council that the re-determination will get underway in late spring or early summer, unless Persimmon applies for it to be determined through written submissions.

It means fresh representations can be made.

Suffolk Coastal District Council is currently appraising what information needs to be submitted.
