Chilton Leys (wider site), Stowmarket

Chilton Leys - Chilton Way - Stowmarket - Suffolk - IP14 3QE

We have submitted two planning applications for the development of the wider scheme at the Chilton Leys site. This will link with and follow on from our Northfield View (Phase 1) development.

  • Overview

    Land at Chilton Leys

    We have submitted an outline planning application for approximately 600 new homes, including a local centre, a sports pavilion, public open space and recreation facilities, at the Chilton Leys site off Chilton Way, Stowmarket.

    It is envisaged that this development will form an extension of our existing Northfield View development which lies to the  northeast of the site and is currently under construction.

    Alongside our outline planning application, we have also submitted a full planning application to be considered concurrently, which relates solely to road and infrastructure works including detailed proposals for a main spine road, emergency access, drainage and attenuation, a pumping station and other utilities.

    Our proposals have evolved through extensive discussions with Mid Suffolk District Council, Suffolk County Council and other key stakeholders, and is in line with the Chilton Leys Development Brief SPD, 2013.

  • About the site

    The development site

    The proposed site, which covers an area of 30.78 hectares (76 acres), is located directly to the west and southwest of the Phase 1 site (Northfield View). Chilton Leys Playing Field lies directly to the east of the site, providing a buffer between the existing Chilton Hall development and the proposed development.

    Our proposals have been designed to form an extension of Northfield View. To view our Illustration of the proposed site layout, please click here
