Plans are underway to develop the land of a former pork factory in Suffolk, building 65 new homes.

An application, submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council last year, proposed developing land in the village of Elmswell, near Bury St Edmunds.

The proposed development includes a mixtures of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, all of which are affordable housing provisions along with social rent and shared ownership housing.

The plans also included the possibility of a road and public open space.

Reserved matters for the site location, layout, floor plans and elevations, and appearance went before the Mid Suffolk's development control committee B and were recommended for approval.

Many applications have since been approved for the land, which is to the west of Hall Lane in the village, where the former Grampian Foods factory was.

The factory closed back in 2006, leaving nearly 250 employees without jobs.

The original application was made by newbuild provider Orbit Homes, with the outline planning application granted permission in January 2021.
