Taylor Wimpey granted permission, on appeal, for 163 homes in Framlingham, Suffolk


Despite Suffolk Coastal District Council’s concerns regarding the design and landscape impact of the scheme, Inspector John Braithwaite ruled that the development “has been carefully designed, and would be a successful extension to the built form of Framlingham.” He also argued that the “relative containment” of the appeal site limited the scheme’s impact on the “gently undulating plateau area” within which it lies, and would have a negligible effect on Framingham Castle and other local heritage assets”.

CSA undertook the supporting LVIA for the development, the ecological assessment and prepared the landscape strategy to show how the development could be successfully assimilated into the local landscape. CSA’s Managing Director, Clive Self, provided evidence to the Inquiry on the effects of the development on the local landscape and townscape.
