Perrywood Sudbury plans

Planning permission has now been granted, so Perrywood can now move ahead with their £8-10m investment in an inspirational new garden centre at their existing site in Newton Road, Sudbury. Existing buildings will be repurposed with the potential to be leased out to other rural businesses and organisations.

Perrywood worked with Paul Pleydell and the team at Pleydell Smithyman to prepare and submit the application. It received overwhelming support from the local community because it will attract visitors to the area and create new jobs.

The build is expected to take at least two years. During that time, Perrywood is inviting local businesses interested in becoming tenants on the site. They must align with Perrywood’s vision and values and complement the garden centre.

Simon Bourne, Retail Director says: “We’d like to work with like-minded businesses over the next five years to develop the wider site into an exciting retail destination. If your business would complement our business, please email with the subject heading ‘Sudbury’ and ask for an expression of interest form.”

Perrywood’s mission is to offer a memorable garden centre experience, deliver wow customer service, and give employees, customers, and the community a reason to smile. The current garden centre building isn’t the high standard customers, and the team would expect, so they are planning to invest in this site and build a stunning new garden centre surrounded by plants and trees, that will grow with our business.

In line with their vision and values, the brand new centre at Perrywood Sudbury will:

  • Be a modern purpose-built garden centre, where Perrywood can look after its customers and inspire more people to bring plants into their lives.
  • Improve the site to be the best that it can be with a fabulous range of facilities including a new restaurant.
  • Create a space where their team enjoy coming to work, with new job opportunities for local people.
  • Put Perrywood Sudbury at the heart of the local community with event spaces, wildlife areas, and leisure opportunities for local people.
  • Teach visitors about and protect the sites flora, fauna and wildlife.

The overall site is larger than at Perrywood Tiptree, but the garden centre plans are similar to Tiptree’s. As a family-run business, it is looking forward to growing Perrywood Sudbury to create a special place among the plants that customers, the team and local people will enjoy.
