On 10th February 2016, our plans for a new development on land to the north of London Road, Ipswich were reviewed by Babergh District Council's planning committee, who reached a resolution to grant planning permission for the first phase of 145 homes along with outline permission for a further 330 homes, a school and commercial units at Wolsey Grange.
The site has already been identified for mixed-use development in Babergh District Council’s Core Strategy and Policies document, which sets out the council’s plans for the growth of the local area up to 2031.
Wolsey Grange Masterplan
In January 2015 we held a public consultation event at the Holiday Inn, Ipswich to inform the local community of our initial masterplan proposals for Wolsey Grange. The event was attended by more than 200 people and we received some very useful feedback from residents, councillors, businesses, community groups and other local stakeholders.
The feedback received during this initial public consultation, along with on-going discussions with Babergh District Council and Suffolk County Council, has been used to help us develop our masterplan.
You can view our revised masterplan proposals by clicking here, and for further detail you can view our masterplan exhibition boards which were displayed at a second public consultation event at the Holiday Inn on Tuesday 2 June 2015 by clicking here.
Wolsey Grange Phase 1
Our second consultation event (June 2015) also featured details of our proposals for the first phase of residential development at Wolsey Grange.

We submitted a planning application to Babergh District Council in July 2015 seeking outline consent for the whole Wolsey Grange site as well as detailed consent for the Phase 1 residential development. This hybrid planning application was refused against officer's recommendations in November 2015.
