Decision on ‘major development’ for Haverhill is delayed for site visit
A decision on whether to grant permission for a ‘major development’ to the north west of Haverhill has been delayed until after a site visit.
St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s development control committee met on Thursday to consider an outline planning application by the trustees of The Vestey 1993 Settlement to build up to 30 homes on 2.2 hectares of agricultural land in Brickfields Drive, Haverhill.
The proposal, which includes associated garages and open space, was presented to the committee because of a request from a ward member and was recommended for approval, subject to the signing of a Section 106 Agreement – money paid by a developer to offset the impact of a development.
The proposed site is outside of the town’s designated housing settlement boundary and has received a number of objections from neighbours.
Committee members will make a decision on August 4 after deferring last week to allow a site visit to take place on July 25.
