    Taylor Wimpey have submitted a reserved matters planning application for the final 3 phases of residential-led development at Lark Grange, (Phases 3 to 5).

    This development is located to the south of Mount Road and to the east of Lady Miriam Way.

    St. Edmundsbury Borough Council granted full planning permission for the first 100 homes (Phase 1) and outline permission for the remaining 400 homes (Phases 2 to 5) in February 2016, which are due to be supported by a new school site, local centre, allotments and generous public open space.
