Burlingham Mill, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk   
20 September 2015 | Posted by Ella Murfet
Beacon Planning has submitted an outline planning application on behalf of Pigeon Ltd for the residential development of Burlingham Mill in Bury St Edmunds

The proposal is for the conversion of the historic Burlingham Mill to 14 apartments with the addition of 28 new dwellings, 48 car parking spaces and alterations to the existing access onto Station Hill.

Burlingham Mill was built in the early 19th century by the company G. Burlingham & Sons and is considered a non- designated heritage asset by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The site is part of a wider allocation in the St Edmundsbury Local Plan 2004, and is known as the Station Hill Development Area under policy BV8 of the Bury St Edmunds Vision 2031. A large part of this allocation seeks to deliver housing, which this application proposes. A masterplan of the allocation site was adopted in July 2015, which is taken into consideration as part of this proposal.

Pigeon Ltd appointed Beacon Planning to cover both the planning and heritage elements of the proposal. Beacon Planning produced a Heritage Statement to inform the Design and Access Statement, assessing the significance of the building and the impact of the proposed development. It was concluded that the proposed development would enhance the significance of the Mill, putting it into a viable new use. The planning team is managing the application process from pre-application discussions through to determination.

The target determination date is late October 2015.
