Please see below for a message from Suffolk County Councillors Alexander Nicoll and Andrew Reid about a drop-in event to find out more about Bloor Homes’ Longwood Fields development and the closure of Woods Lane, on Tuesday October 31st - please respond to them with any queries.
On Tuesday 31st October, representatives from Bloor Homes and their contractors will be present at a drop-in event to give people the opportunity to find out more about the Longwood Fields development in Melton and the associated road closure of Woods Lane.
The event is taking place at East Suffolk House in the Deben Conference room, between 4pm and 8pm. Bloor will be joined by councillors and staff from Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Coastal District Council.
I’m sending this message as an invitation to yourself to hear more about the closure and diversion routes, along with the extra efforts being made by the developer while Woods Lane is closed, which include additional ‘businesses open as usual’ signage, speed monitors and how updates on progress will be communicated to those interested.
Please feel free to pass this invitation to others who may be interested in coming along to find out more.

Blaxhall is a secluded village consisting of 123 houses with an electoral roll of 178 households.
The village is situated approximately 2 miles off the A12 halfway between Woodbridge and Aldeburgh. The famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is only one mile away. The village no longer has a shop or post office but these can be found either at Campsea-Ashe or Snape, there is a farm shop within 2 miles of the village.
The village school built in 1881 by John Sheppard, during the early part of the last century had an average attendance of 100 pupils but was closed in 1976. This is where George Ewert Evans lived when he wrote the famous book “Ask The Fellows Who Cut The Hay”, the old school is now a very distinctive Youth Hostel housing 48 beds. The hostel has been completely revamped recently and modernised with disabled access and accommodation.
