People living in and around Haverhill will get the chance to see how the proposed 2,500 home development on the north-eastern side of the town would shape up during a six week consultation.

Hallam Land Management, Commercial Estates Group and the landowner are holding the consultation to enable people to see the plans and make their views known, including at two public events in Haverhill.

The two events take place on Wednesday, June 3 between 1pm and 3pm at Haverhill Arts Centre and from 4.30pm until 8pm at Churchill Free School, in Chalkstone Way.

Sally Adlen from Hallam Land Management said: “Our proposals respond to the consultation feedback which was provided to the council previously.

“We have included health provision, schools and other facilities and will be providing almost 200 acres of green and open space, including a 42 acre country park to the south of the site.

“We hope the community will visit the events on the June 3, we would be keen to know what residents would like the country park to include and will be showing a number of options.”

Over the next 20 years, it can provide 2,500 homes, new employment space, transport improvements, new schools, community, leisure and recreation facilities and public open space including a country park.

In response to feedback issued to St Edmundsbury Borough Council during previous consultation activity, the site would be accessed via the A143 and Chalkstone Way and vehicular access to the new homes is not proposed from Coupals Road.

The exhibition materials are also available at www.greatwilseypark.co.uk and copies are held at Haverhill Town Council, Kedington Parish Council and the East Town Park Visitors Centre.

In addition to providing attractive quality homes for first time buyers, families and the elderly, this characterful new £300 million development will create approximately 370 new jobs in the health facility, new schools and business space on the site.

The new residents living on this development will ultimately bring around £45 million in new expenditure each year, boosting shops and services and helping to support a further 340 jobs in the wider economy.
