People are being urged to have their say on a blueprint for where 150 new homes could be built in Lowestoft.

A six-week public consultation is due to end today (June 21) on a "residential development brief" document for a housing development site in Oulton, Lowestoft.

The consultation began in May in relation to a draft planning document for land north of Union Lane in Oulton, which is allocated for about 150 homes in the East Suffolk Waveney Local Plan that was adopted in 2019.

With views sought on the draft planning document which, when adopted, will provide guidance for future planning applications for the housing development site in Oulton, there is still time to have your say.

Prepared by East Suffolk Council in collaboration with the landowner, Suffolk County Council and Oulton Parish Council, the draft residential development brief states: "The site was formerly used as a workhouse and Lothingland Hospital, with an associated burial site located in the north west corner."
