Views sought on third phase of new Chilton Woods development

Communities around Sudbury are to have their say on the latest residential phase of a major development to the north of the town.

Chilton Woods will bring 1,150 new homes to the area, a quarter of which will be designated as “affordable” for rent or shared ownership.

Developers Taylor Wimpey will also provide a village centre with new shops, areas of green space and sports pitches and facilities. The plans will include land for a new primary school with pre-school facilities, and a community hall.

The first phase of 200 new homes, known as Maidenfields, went on sale in September 2021, and a planning application for the second phase of 243 homes is currently with Babergh District Council for consideration.

Taylor Wimpey is now seeking views on the third phase of 149 homes, of which 28 will be affordable. The homes will be heated by air source pumps as part of a pioneering district heating network.

An online public consultation will run from September 26 to October 9 at

Sam Caslin, planning manager for Taylor Wimpey London, said: “Community consultation has been at the heart of our work on the Chilton Woods development and we’re excited to share plans for our latest phase with the local community. We know that there is significant interest in the new homes at Chilton Woods and we once again look forward to hearing people’s views.”
