Deben Fields is the housing element of a highly sustainable residential-led mixed-use development which will also deliver the Felixstowe Sports Hub by providing a home for Felixstowe and Corinthians Cricket Club and a new leisure facility.

The entire scheme is being delivered by east Suffolk Council and will deliver 61 new properties, 42 of which will be affordable homes. It seeks to set the highest standards in green technology and is designed to achieve 'Passivhaus' certification, reflecting the Council's commitment to innovation and designing for a more sustainable future.  

The development maximises green space and enhanced biodiversity while still providing designated parking for all homes. The inclusion of "play streets" bring further emphasis to the pedestrianised nature of the site, creating a safe and welcoming space for residents to walk, meet and socialise.  


We want to deliver the best possible quality of life for everyone who lives in, works in and visits East Suffolk. To help us achieve this, the East Suffolk Council Strategic Plan is our ‘compass’, guiding all our decision making, with five key themes showing the direction we will take.


East Suffolk Council is committed to delivering much needed new housing and is focused on addressing housing shortages with a dedicated new build and redevelopment programme. For more information about our Housing programme and what this could mean for you and your neighbourhood:


In 2019 East Suffolk Council declared a climate emergency and committed to Carbon Neutrality by 2030. This development, designed to Passivhaus standards, will provide an exemplar housing scheme which champions low-carbon design, reduces running costs for residents and sets a benchmark for future housing developments in East Suffolk.
