Our proposal for additional phases at Wolsey Grange:
We are also preparing an Outline Planning application relating to the emerging Local Plan allocation for new homes and infrastructure on land north of the A1071, referred to as ‘Wolsey Grange 2’.
We held a public consultation event on Tuesday 17th September 2019. The consultation boards from the event can be downloaded here.
Wolsey Grange 1b - land south of the A1071
Taylor Wimpey has received Reserved Matters approval for 305 homes on the remainder of the Wolsey Grange 1 site, identified as Wolsey Grange 1b. Given the outline consent established the principle of development, the reserved matters proposals relates to design, scale, layout, massing and landscaping.

Wolsey Grange 2 will make a valuable contribution to the local housing need whilst also delivering community and education facilities.
Our current plans include:
- Approximately 800 new homes
- Mix of house types
- 35% affordable housing
- Land for a new primary school
- New and enhanced pedestrian and cycle routes
- New public open space with the integration of water management
- New tree planting and sensitive consideration for Chantry Park and other heritage assets
About the site
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council is now progressing a new Local Plan, which will inform the Districts’ growth until 2036. This joint Local Plan is currently out for consultation and Wolsey Grange 1 has again been identified (LA014) within the consultation document. Land North of the A1071 (identified as Wolsey Grange 2), has also been included as a preferred site for residential development (allocation LA013).
The Wolsey Grange development will offer many benefits to existing and new residents including:
- A range of affordable homes to help local people to continue to live in the area
- 3ha school site to facilitate a two form entry school
- Safe and attractive walking and cycling routes through the site to the wider area
- Provision of play and recreational opportunities
- A network of green corridors incorporating existing trees and hedges
- Junction improvements to reduce delays and improve journey times on A1071.
- Improved access to existing bus corridor on A1071 and A1214
- Linkages provided through the site, connecting the village of Sproughton with Suffolk One College and beyond
- Ecological benefits including enhancement of natural habitats
Taylor Wimpey received Reserved Matters approval for Phase 1B in July 2020. Construction is expected to commence Spring 2021
