Development off Barrow Hill, Bury St Edmunds

As you may be aware, planning permission has now been granted by St Edmundsbury District Council for the construction of 75 new homes on land off Barrow Hill, Bury St Edmunds. The development will include a range of 1 to 5-bedroom houses and apartments, 22 of which will be affordable or shared ownership homes delivered in partnership with a housing association. The final masterplan for the site is shown below.

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 to the local community. 

Works on construction of the development will begin in February, with the first homes becoming available to buy in June.

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 the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874.

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?

  • The working hours shall be between:


    • 7.30am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday
    • 8.00am – 1.00pm Saturday
    • No work 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: How will the site be accessed by construction traffic?

  • During construction the site will be accessed via Barrow Hill. We understand that this will cause more vehicles using this road, but we endeavour to keep the disruption to usual traffic to a minimum. We will conduct road inspections and carry out road cleaning as and when necessary.
  • If you see anything that you feel needs to be addressed, then please do contact us by emailing or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 so that we can investigate this for you.

If at any point you feel that the noise is on-going outside of our standard working hours times please get in touch with us via or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 and we will see if this can be resolved in any way.
