RESIDENTS have the opportunity to express their views about the impact of a 550-space park and ride site earmarked for their village near Ipswich.
Martlesham Parish Council says the proposed scheme, which has generated much controversy in previous years, needs to be unveiled before parishioners. A meeting will be held on September 5 in the parish room, Martlesham Road, and then the parish council will base its reply for the consultation process on the comments received from the public.
Suffolk County Council has submitted a planning application to the district council for a £2.8m project in woodland nearly opposite the police headquarters at Martlesham.
The aim is to build the site in paddocks used for grazing horses adjacent to the north-bound carriageway of the A12. Access for buses would be through Woodman's Track via a new junction on the A1214 between a house and Woodman's Place.
