Major Development to the land South and East of Adastral Park

The Parish Council has not opposed the application because it now accepts that a single allocation of 2,000 homes in this area is part and parcel of the agreed District Local Plan, which has been subject to much scrutiny & challenge.   The Council, along with other neighbouring parishes & No Adastral New Town, did strongly object to this allocation but was ultimately unsuccessful.   Major concerns regarding transport, healthcare and green infrastructure still remain and we have voiced these in our response to the application.  All the plans can be viewed directly at www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/planning/adastral-park.  Please click on Public Access to see representations, enter Adastral Park as a key word, open the planning application, go to documents followed by ‘view associated documents’.

The formal deadline for comments has now closed but there is still much going on behind the scenes.  The Council is now seeking the best possible outcomes for existing and future residents through ongoing engagement with CEG, SCDC and Suffolk County Council Highways Department.  We are seeking long term solutions to A12 and local route congestion, as well as assurances on healthcare and local services.
