Rushmere St Andrew – Public Consultation (Now Closed)

THE REDEVELOPMENT OF REDECROFT AND LAND ADJOINING REDECROFT, 155 THE STREET, RUSHMERE ST ANDREW, IPSWICH

Brooke Smith Planning, Chartered Town Planning and Development Consultants is instructed by Knight Frank LLP, on behalf of a number of charity beneficiaries, to investigate the potential for residential development on land in Rushmere St Andrew.

We would like to invite your views on development proposals ahead of any planning application being submitted to Suffolk Coastal District Council.

THE SITE

The site comprises two plots located off The Street, within the village of Rushmere St Andrew being the property Redecroft and land adjoining.

The site is surrounded by detached residential properties to the north and east. To the west is agricultural land, and to the south is a range of sports pitches and facilities including Club House, the training ground for Ipswich Town Football Club and Ipswich YM RUFC’s ground.

THE PROPOSALS

The scheme proposals currently being consulted on comprise two phases:

  • Phase 1 – Retention and refurbishment of the house and construction of 3 detached residential units on land to the rear of Redecroft.
  • Phase 2 – Option 1 for 10 detached residential units plus 4 affordable residential units or Option 2 for 11 detached residential market units. This will be on land to the west of Redecroft and will front onto The Street reflecting the existing street scene.

Masterplan drawings, attached below, have been prepared to show how the two plots could be developed, with the aim of creating a high quality residential scheme which compliments the existing development in the area.

In terms of layout, a new access will be created along the boundary of Redecroft and will serve the houses forming phase 1 and part of phase 2. As shown in the masterplan proposals, there is the potential for providing 4 affordable homes on the frontage of The Street. The need for affordable housing on site is currently being considered. Your views on this element of the scheme are welcomed.
