Draft masterplan submitted for development at Shepherd's Grove near Stanton in Suffolk, for consultation.View Press Release »


The community benefits of the proposals would be:

A new business park for up to 1,750,000 sq ft of floorspace creating a significant number of new jobs.

All HGV traffic currently going through Stanton to the existing Shepherd’s Grove West industrial estate will be able to enter Shepherd’s Grove via a new roundabout junction on the A143 and a new access road into the heart of the area.

The new roundabout junction on the A143 will slow traffic considerably coming in and out of Stanton and make the junction on to the A143 from Hepworth considerably safer.

A new and attractive residential development of between 265 and 380 dwellings with improved pedestrian and cycle access to Stanton and the existing primary school, healthcare and shopping facilities.

The developable land within the Masterplan area forms 3 distinct ‘zones’ which, through new development, will each exhibit their own identity whilst creating a cohesive mixed use community.
