APPLICATION BY ST EDMUND'S TERRACE
ie St Edmund's Monument
Plannimg Application adjacent to Abbey Terrace
Mid Suffolk District Council planning application number DC/20/01717.
There are those in the village who feel that the St Edmund's Monument is sacrosanct and were astonished that the MSDC Planning Department approved the application in 2017 to build up to 4 houses adjacent to the monument which is also on a green field site in between two conservation areas. It seemed that listing of the Monument had not previously been sought, possibly because no one thought planning to build houses would be given around this historical site.
MSDC did not seek comment from Suffolk Preservation Society nor MSDC Heritage Dept.
On 22nd July the application is going in front of MSDC planning committee. If you feel you would like to object to this application please lobby the committee members on:

The Hoxne Neighbourhood Development Plan
Work has begun on this policy document, which will guide development and protect open spaces in the village.
“The NDP will enable our community to create a shared vision and plan for our area. It will enable the parish community to choose where we want appropriate new homes, businesses, and local amenities to be developed or protected. You can have your say on what Hoxne will look like for years to come”.
