You get to have a say on where 10,000 new homes should be built in West Suffolk from today.

Most will go in Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill (about 80%) to meet demand for housing over the next 20 years. The remaining 20% which is equivalent to 1127 homes will be constructed in rural areas.

Cllr Terry Clements, Cabinet Member for Planning, said:

"Local people known their own villages and are in a position to give us valuable feedback on the proposals. There will be a number of events, including local drop-in sessions when residents can come along and talk to planning officers in person about the detail of the proposals. I hope as many people as possible will participate in this fundamental work."
