Plans to turn Sudbury’s former post office into business units and flats have been submitted.

The East Street site, which was vacated in 2016 when the post office moved to WHSmith in the town, has been bought by property developer Barry Drury.

A planning application for the building has now been submitted to Babergh District Council for change of use to five business units on the ground floor and two flats above on the first floor.

The supporting statement for the application said the front elevation would be altered to provide five shop fronts and each shop unit would be provided with a large open plan retail area, washing up area and toilet.

The upper floor would consist of a one-bedroom and two-bedroom flat under the plans.

Suffolk Highways said that as the site is in a sustainable location, it did not wish to raise any objections to the proposals.
