A group looking at the controversial Chilton Woods site on the outskirts of Sudbury is deciding on what the development should contain.
The Chilton Woods place shaping group is currently working with consultants to decide what is needed at the development.
Jenny Antill, Babergh District Councillor for the ward, said it was vital that the proposed plans go ahead.
“Its crucial for Babergh delivering its affordable homes commitments and is in our local plan as it is by far the largest plan we have,” she said.
She was confident that the site would get permission.
“The proposal is designated for the site in the local plan, so as long as everything is satisfactory planning would be obtained.”
