Developer calls on people to have their say on plans for new homes in Haverhill

The developer of a site planned for new homes in Haverhill is inviting the local community to have their say on detailed proposals for a second phase.

Taylor Wimpey East Anglia is currently drawing up plans for approximately 148 new homes, 44 (30%) of which will be affordable properties, following on from an Outline Planning Application submitted by Jaynic Investments LLP to West Suffolk Council in May 2019.

The site, in Hanchett End which lies between Three Counties Way, the A1307 and the A1017, and close to the Flying Shuttle pub, was originally allocated as employment land within the Local Plan.

A lack of commercial interest in the site resulted in outline planning permission being granted in April of this year for the residential development of up to 155 dwellings.

Once complete, there will be a mix of one to five-bedroom properties, including some apartments, available to purchase. The scheme will also contribute approximately £1.5m towards local services and infrastructure, including local schooling, healthcare and road improvements.

Andrew Wright, Design & Planning manager for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “We are keen to engage with local residents, businesses and interested parties to allow them to have their say on development plans for their area. The feedback we receive from local residents is invaluable and helps us develop and refine our emerging proposals, before a detailed planning application is finalised for submission to West Suffolk Council in the new year.”

This public consultation will be carried out electronically and the information will be available to view at from 8am on Monday, November 29. The deadline for feedback is Friday, December 24, and comments can be emailed directly to the teams involved at
