Haverhill: 150 homes will be built on research park
AN application to build 150 homes as part of a project to bring 2,000 jobs to west Suffolk has been approved by council planning bosses.
The Taylor Wimpey East Anglia development on the site at the western edge of Haverhill, which already has outline consent, will help finance the infrastructure of a �100million “science park”.
It is hoped the Haverhill Research Project in Hanchett End will provide an “economic boost” for the whole county and put the region on a par with Cambridge.
Following the decision by St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Development Control Committee 127 homes and 23 flats – including 15 affordable units – will now be built across 8.25 acres.
Planning permission for the infrastructure works to serve the business park, housing, pub, hotel and children’s cr�che was granted in January 2012.
