The Haverhill development plans will be heard at the town’s leisure centre at 9.30am on both Wednesday (February 5) and the following day (Thursday, February 6).

The first day Wednesday (February 5) sees scrutiny of Objectives, Travel, Infrastructure and the Environment in the morning, and then Local centres, community facilities and Haverhill Town Centre in the afternoon (2pm).

On Thursday (February 6) Homes and Communities will be heard in the morning and Jobs and Economy in the afternoon (2pm).

Mr Clews has been appointed by the secretary of state to examine the documents, which have been criticised for lack of green space, not enough infrastructure and no town centre improvements.

He will focus on whether the document is legally compliant and fit for purpose.
