Hamilton Road Quarter

Hamilton Road Quarter and Belle Vue Architect Overview

In September 2020 the Sudbury Vision Steering Group was presented with the high level concept works prepared by Hamson Barron Smith (HBS) architects. This incorporated the Hamilton Road area alongside early concept work for Belle Vue park entrance.

This work outlines a high level mixed use residential and commercial scheme for Hamilton Road incorporating: 

  • Moving the bus station to on-street stops
  • Better connectivity of the area with the rest of the town and Belle Vue Park (and proposed new entrance)
  • Improving the flow of pedestrians including to and from the rail station, proposed new GP practice, river walk meadows and leisure centre
  • Improved public realm and opportunities for community activities
  • Cinema and hotel
  • Town centre living
  • Regenerating derelict brownfield area

The Council, working closely with Suffolk County Council and town partners, is actively looking for opportunities including external funding to bring forward a viable scheme.

A well-supported and evidence Round 1 Levelling Up Fund bid submitted in June 2021 incorporating the regeneration scheme and local transport bus improvements was not successful. Alternatives including a phased development approach are now being explored, and fresh external funding opportunities developed.
