Development at Park Road, Grundisburgh

As you may be aware, planning permission was granted by East Suffolk Council in June 2021 for a development at Park Road, Grundisburgh.

The development will consist of 70 new homes and will range from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses, including a number of Affordable Homes, including rented and shared ownership, which will be delivered in partnership with a housing association. The final masterplan for the site is shown below:

Grundisburgh Vale Provisional Planning Layout - Hopkins Homes

The development is being built by Hopkins Homes, one of the largest independent house builders in East Anglia. We pride ourselves on the quality of the homes we create and the strength of our links with the local community.

Work will start on site this month. The show home is expected to be completed in April 2023.

Site update – January 2023

Due to collaborative BT, UKPN and GTC electric works, there will be planned road closures taking place. Access will be maintained for residents throughout.

The road closures are as follows:

  • Chapel Road will be closed between 16 January and 29 January
  • Park Road will be closed for 10 days between 13 February and 23 February.

Site update – September 2022

Roadworks on Park Road are scheduled for 24 October for both gas main and water main works. We will soon have a date for the Chapel Road closure for UKPN electric works.

We are working with Suffolk Highways to confirm the actual public footpath line across the north of the site and will try and maintain the three existing trees in this area.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I get in touch with the site team?

We have created a Community Liaison Service so you can ask questions or raise any concerns relating to our work or our contractors. This service is handled by Athene Communications and we are required to inform you that your data (name and contact details if provided) will be stored for the sole purpose of responding to your query. Athene will respond directly to you, and where appropriate, investigate matters on site.

You can make contact by emailing or by calling our Freephone number 0800 0352874. This is an answer phone service, which is checked regularly on weekdays.

Q: Will I be affected by construction on site?

There is no doubting the need for new homes – both nationally and locally – but we do also appreciate that building houses can cause some disruption to local people through construction noise and traffic. We are committed to keeping such disruption to a minimum.

Q: What times will work take place on site?

An application to agree the working hours is being presently considered by East Suffolk Council, the working hours proposed are:

  • 07:30am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday
  • 07:30am – 1.00pm Saturday

No works shall be carried out on Sundays or Public Holidays.

Please be aware that our construction teams often arrive shortly before these times but are aware of the site working hours.

Q: What impact will the construction have on local traffic?

We understand the construction period will result in more vehicles using the road, however we will endeavour to keep the disruption to a minimum. We regularly inspect site entrances to minimise mud and dust, and will clean when required.

If you see anything that you feel needs to be addressed, please contact us by emailing or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 so that we can investigate this for you.

Q: Flooding and drainage concerns.

As part of the planning and technical design process, Hopkins Homes has undertaken detailed assessments of flood risk and consulted with the Lead Local Flood Authority and Anglian Water. The works undertaken as part of the development have been approved by the relevant bodies to ensure that the development does not have a detrimental impact on the current infrastructure and risks of flooding have been addressed.

Q: Noise complaints (generators, etc.)

We do our best to keep disruption to a minimum, though our construction will unavoidably cause some noise. If at any point you feel that the noise is on-going outside of our standard working hours please get in touch with us via or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 and we will look into this.

Q: I would potentially like to buy one of the properties on this development – who should I contact?

Our community liaison service is focused on acknowledging and addressing enquiries and concerns relating to the construction of the development. If you are interested in purchasing a new home please register your interest on our Grundisburgh Vale Development page.
