1100 new homes

February 8, 2017 7:22 PM

The Planning Committee at Ipswich Borough Council today granted Crest Nicolson outline planning permission for 1100 homes in the Northern Fringe of Ipswich. This is the start of one of the largest developments Ipswich has ever seen.

Councillor Inga Lockington addressed the Committee together with a number of Local Residents and raised concerns about air quality and, in particular, highway problems. Ipswich council officers stated that over the course of the development, improved standards for vehicle emissions would help deal with pollution. Suffolk County Council agreed there would be a significant impact on adjoining highways but this would come within acceptable limits. Although permission has now been given, Inga & Oliver confirm that they will continue to scutinise all parties and make sure local people's worries are not ignored."

Yes, we need housing but we need the infrastructure as well.

The next Application (Mersea Homes) as part of this large Greenfield Site will soon go in front of the Planning Committee.
