Hundreds of new homes are set to be built for American military personnel and their families.
606 homes on the Lakenheath air base will be demolished
The houses are part of a five-year £104m($200.8m) project to replace 606 homes on the Lakenheath air base.
Forest Heath District Council approved the planning application on December 8.
Brig.Gen.Mark Matthews said: "The military construction project was a giant leap forward to replace the current housing that was built 40 to 50 years ago."
He added: "The new homes will ensure our airmen and their families have modern living conditions."
The new two, three, and four-bedroom homes will be for U.S. service staff stationed at RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall in West Suffolk.
The first phase of the project, called Liberty Village, will see 92 currently vacant homes demolished and replaced with 89 new ones.
The leader of Forest Heath District Council, Geoffrey Jaggard, previously said he was not concerned by the scale of the development plans.
"I don't think it is necessarily a worrying thing for the local community," he said.
"We are very used to having the Americans here and the community relations between local people and Americans has been good."
