Tilia Homes’ planning
application for 60 high quality new homes in the village of Beck Row has been
approved by West Suffolk Council.
The site, situated to the
north west of Mildenhall, is in a prime location surrounded by local amenities,
including a primary school and nursery, community centre, pubs and eateries, a
convenience store and church. The five acre site was previously agricultural
land and has been identified as an available site for future housing by the
local council, with outline planning approval granted in July 2020.
Once complete, the
development will include a collection of thoughtfully-designed two, three and
four bedroom homes and two-bedroom bungalows, with 30% of these allocated as affordable
homes for rental and shared ownership tenures.
As well as new homes, Tilia will
also provide over £500,000 to the local community via the section 106 agreement
– including primary school and library provisions – and 0.9 acres of green open space. The homes
at Beck Row will also become Tilia’s first site to be completely heated by air
source heat pumps, with electric vehicle charging points in every home too.
James Griffiths, head of planning at Tilia
Homes Eastern, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning permission for 60
new homes in Beck Row and look forward to delivering high quality housing in
such a desirable area, with a large number of amenities offering an ideal
location for new residents. We’re really proud of the scheme we will be
delivering here, ensuring that our methods of housebuilding evolve to become
more sustainable – and we’re excited that this will be our first development to
use heat pumps over gas central heating.
“We are aiming to break ground and start
construction at the development in July, with the first properties due to be
released for sale in January next year.”
