Around 100 residents in West Row turned up to a meeting held in on Thursday to voice their concerns over proposals to build more than 100 new homes in the village.

Residents gathered at the Judes Ferry pub in the village to put forward objections to plans submitted by the Waters family, in conjunction with Suffolk County Council, and Pigeon Investment Management, to construct 130 new homes on land around where the former White Horse pub was located in Beeches Road.

“About 90 families were represented at the meeting and everybody was quite positive in coming up with good objections why this should not get the go ahead,” said Becky Morley-Williams, resident and campaigner.

“We have another meeting tonight at West Row Village Hall to discuss more ways of how we can now take these objections forward.”

In addition to the two meetings taking place an e-petition has been launched by the residents to further bolster their case.

Since its launch it has attracted more than 180 signatures opposing the plans.

Anyone wishing to sign the e-petition can do so by searching Beeches Road at while tonight’s meeting in the village takes place at 7pm.
