College Mews in Mitchell Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, has been an innovative venture, involving more than 180 students working alongside Havebury on every aspect of the design and build of the three houses and four flats.

Yesterday, Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill cut the ribbon on the new development, named College Mews in honour of the special partnership between the college and Havebury Housing.

Havebury’s development manager Suzanne Newman said: “It is thought that this is the first project of its kind in the country, where a housing association has worked alongside a college in order to give practical construction training to students from inception to completion.”
