A home in a west Suffolk town will be demolished and replaced with two new-builds as plans have been given the go-ahead. 

Applicant Pryke Developments submitted plans to demolish and transform Cherry Cottage in Clare, near Sudbury, to West Suffolk Council in November. 

Consent was sought for the removal of the existing home, which had been let for 60 years but is currently unoccupied, and for two new, "high quality" four-bedroom homes to be built on the plot. 

The homes would have three floors, a lower ground floor, a ground floor and a first floor.

Shared access would be created for the site, along with parking spaces and gardens to the back. 

It is unclear how old the house is, but it was once part of a row of five houses known as 'Umbrella Row' which was suspected to have been built in the late 19th century. 

The town council expressed support for the plans, which were approved by West Suffolk Council on Tuesday. 

The applicant now has three years to begin developments.
