LOCAL PLAN OUTLINES HAVERHILL’S FUTURE
The draft local plan for St Edmundsbury Council earmarked Gurteens and Cleales as two of the four town centre sites suitable for development to include shops, offices, homes and car parking.
A multi-storey car park in Jubilee Walk would also make more room for shops while the fourth area proposed for car parking and shops was between the library and back of Queen Street.
The draft plan also showed that there were 11 allocated sites in Haverhill suitable for substantial residential development, which could accommodate a further 2,300 houses.
NUCLEAR ALARM SIREN
A new 25-foot post was put up outside the rear garden fence of a family in Rockall Close, Haverhill and when they enquired what it was they were told it was an early warning siren in the event of a nuclear attack.
Malcolm and Jocelyn Mason were not too impressed with the ‘conspicuous’ location for the post but were told planning permission had already been in place for some time.
