Reserved Matters approved on former Suffolk orchard site

Following the recent purchase of a orchard situated just a mile from the centre of Sudbury in Suffolk, Anderson achieved reserved matters consent for a scheme of 130 high-quality homes in a meeting of Babergh District’s Planning Committee on Wednesday 18 December.

The determination, which took only three months, sees approval of details to deliver 130 high-specification homes (85 open market houses plus 45 affordable homes), public open space and children’s play.

Sean Emmett, Group Development Director at Anderson, said: “The former orchard site in Chilton is an opportunity for Anderson to set a benchmark for quality of development in an area earmarked for growth.

“Working with the community, including our neighbours, local councillors and the Parish Council, we have in front of us a scheme which delivers new and affordable homes for local people, a homage to the site’s surroundings through public art and a real chance to deliver public open space on a previously private site.”

Tim Chilvers, Planning Manager at Anderson and project lead, added: “The collaboration between Anderson and the planning team at Babergh District Council continues to show the best of development and we hope that this continues as we deliver for Chilton and its residents.”
