An outline planning proposal for 220 homes to be built in Reydon, near Southwold, is due to be discussed by East Suffolk Council next week.

The bid - which was due to be discussed last month but was moved until the March 10 meeting at Riverside in Lowestoft due to a late objection - would see a new housing estate built on land earmarked for development in the East Suffolk Council (Waveney) Local Plan .

In March last year, agents Brown and Co property and business consultancy lodged an outline planning application - on behalf of WM. Denny & Son Limited and Chartwell Industries - for 220 homes with associated open space on land to the west of Copperwheat Avenue in Reydon.

The plans centre around the development of 220 new homes - including 88 affordable homes - on agricultural land in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Councillors will be told that planning officers recommend that the outline application be approved with conditions - despite concerns being raised.

Reydon Parish Council has expressed fears that the development, if approved, will result in homes being unoccupied at times throughout the year.
