Plans for an access road and tractor dealership in west Suffolk are set to go before the council.
A planning application has been submitted on land to the south of Rougham Tower Avenue – formerly known as the Eastern Relief Road – and west of Woodlands Road at Suffolk Business Park.
The application is split into two parts – a new access road with cycle ways and footpaths, pumping station, and electrical substation as well as a new tractor dealership which includes parking, landscaping and a large area where agricultural machinery will be stored for sales.
The site was previously agricultural fields and prior to that formed part of the Rougham Airfield, which was used during World War Two.
The plans will go before St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s development control committee on Thursday, January 3.
Rushbrooke with Rougham Parish Council support the application and planning officers have recommended approval.
