Northfield View, Stowmarket Phase 2
A reserved matters planning application for a new residential development of up to 175 homes on land at Chilton Leys, Stowmarket, Suffolk was approved by Mid Suffolk District Council on the 24 October 2018. This application relates to Phase 2a of our development at Northfield View.
