Bridge plan is approved

APPROVAL has been given for a new wooden footbridge and cycle path to be built across the River Stour to provide the “missing section” of the Cornard Riverside Walk.

Councillors approved the plans on Wednesday. It is being funded from a Section 106 agreement between Babergh District Council and Barrett Homes, which developed the nearby housing estate, Bakers Mill.

The project will enable the completion of the Cornard Riverside Walk, which starts at Friars Meadow, Sudbury.
