Land south of Chapelwent Road, Haverhill - Haverhill - Suffolk

Taylor Wimpey has submitted a detailed planning application for a new residential development of 87 homes on land south of Chapelwent Road, Haverhill. 

  • Overview


    We have submitted 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 The plans for the school were then withdrawn, and the land has since been identified as a site for new housing in St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Haverhill Vision 2031 document.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 2018. 

  • About the site

    About the site

    The site is located within the northern fringes of Haverhill, West Suffolk and falls within the jurisdiction of St Edmundsbury Borough Council. It extends to some 2.8ha and is accessed off Chapelwent Road along its northern boundary. The site is allocated for development within the Haverhill Vision 2031 which forms part of the Local Plan and is identified as site HV5(a).

    To the north is adjoining residential development accessed off Chapelwent Road and Hales Barn Road.

    Immediately south of the site is a track that provides access to a skatepark and children’s play area.

    To the west of the site is a track bordered by a stream with residential development accessed off Hales Barn Road located adjacent to the stream.

    Adjoining the site along its eastern boundary is residential development accessed off Howe Road. This development continues eastwards with Haverhill Town Centre located just over half a mile to the south east.

    The site was originally identified for a middle school as part of a wider development. However as there is no longer a need for this use, the site is to be returned to Taylor Wimpey for housing.

  • What's proposed

    What's proposed?

    The proposed development is located in the eastern portion of the site with the western area retained as public open space. This will provide a continuation of existing development to the north and east of the site, whilst the public open space becomes an extension of that to the north. The proposed organisation of land use helps to ensure the site appropriately responds to its immediate location to create a cohesive development.

    Our proposals include:

    • 87 homes
    • 30% affordable housing
    • Public open space for new and existing residents
    • Attenuation basin
    • Foul water pumping station
    • Electricity sub-station
