Boxford Housing Development, Sudbury, Suffolk.

To meet the housing need for Boxford 18 new affordable dwellings were proposed along with 7 new market sale dwellings.

Consideration was given to ensure that the impact of this edge of village development was kept to a minimum with lower height dwellings being placed sensitively on the principal edge of the site, thus reducing the impact of the built form when the site is viewed from the countryside.

The design proposals for both for the site layout and the new housing should have a rural character and be sympathetically designed to minimise the impact of the development on the countryside.
