The former station on London Road comprises of a front section which dates from the 1930s.

The three-storey building, which is advertised on Realla, includes a glass surround, arched roof and sash windows.

The plans feature an application for a total floor area for eight flats, which could be formed within the existing building.

Last year, Architects Chaplin Farrant Ltd submitted a planning application on behalf of Suffolk Constabulary.
