Firm asked to come up with ideas for former sugar beet factory

David Lock Associates has been appointed masterplanner at a scheme to redevelop a former sugar beet site in Suffolk.

The factory at Sproughton, a village to the west of Ipswich, closed back in 2001 and has been derelict ever since.

It was bought by Ipswich borough council 15 months ago with the local authority now wanting to turn it into a mixed-use scheme.

Work on the masterplan is due to finish this autumn with construction work possibly starting as early as next year.

The site has been given Enterprise Zone status by the government, which is designed to give incentives to businesses looking to move there.

    Might just ease Ipswich + Suffolk generally out of the 20c into the 21c at last...might!, but I'm not holding my breath!

    I can just see the masterplan now. Little curvy streets lined with nasty little houses. No urban quality.
