Bellway submits plans for 440 new homes in Ipswich

Bellway has submitted plans for a major housing development which would bring 440 new homes to land off Westerfield Road in Ipswich.

The plans have been submitted to Ipswich Borough Council and include proposals to provide additional land for a new primary school and for a new village green. The land is designated for development within the new Ipswich Garden Suburb. Bellway acquired the site in February 2021.

Managing Director of Bellway Essex, Richard Burrows, said: “Our development will help to progress the council’s vision for the garden suburb. These homes would make up a significant proportion of the 3,500 expected to be built there.

“Bellway has a proven track record of creating major developments which deliver hundreds of homes in a sustainable manner. There will be significant investment in local services, a boost to local employment and affordable housing available for shared ownership or low-cost rent.

“The new school will be important to cater for the needs of the new community, while the village green will provide an outdoor space for people to meet.

“Our plans also include new cycle routes and footpaths to link the development to its surroundings and encourage sustainable transport.”
