NEW homes could be on their way to Hadleigh today.

Developers Persimmon Homes Anglia hopes to build around 170 homes on a site on the outskirts of the town and it expecting to submit a full planning proposal to Babergh District Council soon.

The development, which has already been given outline planning permission from the council, would see the homes and five hectares of industrial and commercial land built on the land to the south of the A1071 and the east of Lady Lane.

Rules about planning mean 35 per cent of the homes will be affordable and meet the needs of Hadleigh, and that at least 20 pc of the rest of the homes will be either one or two-bedroom units.

Alan Hadman, managing director, Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “We have acquired approximately 20 acres of land in Hadleigh, Suffolk where we hope to construct around 170 new homes as well as providing a much needed employment area.

“The site already has outline planning approval, however, we are currently in the process of preparing a detailed planning application and this will be submitted to Babergh District Council in the near future.

“The property market in South Suffolk remains extremely buoyant and we are confident this new site, which we anticipate will include a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom properties, will help meet the continued demand for new properties in the region."
