A drop in consultation event will be held next week so member of the public can have their say on a significant development in a Suffolk village.

Nearly 300 homes could be built on a site of Redwald Road in the village of Rendlesham if planning permission is given.

A public exhibition was held last July to inform residents of the developers’ ideas.

An application for outline planning permission on the site was sent in December with a formal consultation closing on February 12 this year.

Responders to the consultation included the RSPB who were concerned about the potential impact of the site on local special protection areas.

The session will take place on February 26 at the Community Centre from 2-8pm.

Rendlesham Parish Council will then meet on February 27 to make a decision on their response.
