We are currently preparing a detailed planning application for a new residential development of 87 dwellings in Haverhill.
The site lies south of Chapelwent Road and west of an existing residential development off Howe Road.
The site was originally allocated for a new middle school by Suffolk County Council. The plans for the school were then withdrawn, and the land has since been identified as a site for new housing in St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Haverhill Vision 2031 document.
Our proposal is for a mix of one to five-bedroom properties, of which 30% would be affordable. We would also retain the green space to the west with an attenuation pond and new footpath routes linking to the wider area.
A public exhibition of our proposals was held at Haverhill Arts Centre on Friday 2nd March.
If you were not able to visit the exhibition, you can view our consultation boards in a PDF format here.
The consultation period ended on the 16 March and all feedback is now being considered. Once the application is submitted, you will still have the opportunity to comment on the proposals directly via the Planning Application Search pages of St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s webpage.
