There are several listed farm complexes located around the Green, and to the south of the settlement on Mill Street.

In order to facilitate existing planning commitments and growth planned through the Joint Local Plan a new primary school may be required. This depends upon the outcome on further investigation of existing primary school capacity potential. A new pre-school for 30 places is needed locally. Stowupland High School will require an expansion[1]. Additionally, there may be a requirement for increased healthcare capacity. Due to Water Recycling Centre capacity, development will be required to carry out a full assessment of the increased discharge on the watercourse. The detailed assessment should demonstrate that the proposed development can be delivered without causing a breach of environment legislation (WFD) for the site. Depending upon the outcome of the assessment contributions may be sought to create extra capacity at Stowmarket Water Recycling Centre. Existing planning commitments and growth through the Joint Local Plan will result in Stowmarket Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) operating over capacity. Therefore, development in Stowupland will be expected to make contributions towards additional HWRC provision.
