Bellway submits plans for 190 homes in Bramford

Plans to build 190 homes in Bramford, near Ipswich, have been submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council.

Bellway is seeking detailed planning permission to develop a 32-acre site to the east of Loraine Way at the northern edge of the village.

Outline consent for the site was granted in July 2019, with a decision on the detailed plans expected in June. If these are approved, Bellway aims to start construction work on the site at the end of this year.

The development is set to comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses for sale, as well as 67 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership. Just over half of the site will be provided as public open space, while land has also been allocated for a new pre-school.

Richard Burrows, Managing Director of Bellway Essex, said: “Our plans for Loraine Way represent our latest contribution towards meeting the rising demand for new homes in Suffolk, following the acquisition of sites in Haughley, Whitton, Wherstead and Westerfield.

“Homes in village locations with easy access to towns and cities have become increasingly sought-after over the past year, with homeowners placing a greater premium on outdoor space. Our Bramford development will be located just half a mile from the centre of the village, and within a 15-minute drive of Ipswich town centre. Residents will also benefit from the 17 acres of green open space being created within the site.

“The new homes have been designed to reflect the architectural characteristics of existing properties within the village to ensure the development blends in with its surroundings. Each home is from Bellway’s Artisan Collection, our flagship range of house types which combine traditional craftsmanship with modern construction techniques. Designs will include the two-bedroom Cooper, three-bedroom Chandler and four-bedroom Scrivener.

“Subject to approval from Mid Suffolk District Council, we aim to start work on site later this year and hope to welcome the first residents to the development in summer 2022.”
