Hamilton Road Quarter
Hamilton Road Quarter

Sudbury is an attractive market town with many fine buildings dominating the marketplace, including Gainsborough’s House and the Grade 1 listed former St. Peter’s Church.

The Hamilton Road Quarter is a slightly run-down area behind the town centre, with a small bus station at its centre as well as an important route to the railway station and local food stores. Our masterplanning team were appointed by Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council, who have considerable land ownerships in the Quarter, to draw up options for its regeneration, with emphasis on improving the evening economy for younger people.
The preferred option enhances an existing shopping centre and includes a small urban square at its southern end. This will provide an anchor for a five-screen cinema, food and drink outlets, small-scale shops and housing overlooking the mediaeval church tower. The quality of the public realm running through the quarter is as important as the buildings which enclose it. The suggested space includes well-landscaped car parks and a fine old walled garden.
