Haverhill Vales, Haverhill, Suffolk

Proposed New Homes & Community Facilities

Show on Google Map

Catesby Estates have entered into an agreement to promote a significant and strategic extension  to Haverhill, Suffolk. 

We now be moving forward with local stakeholders to deliver this exciting vision for the area.

Totalling 750 acres (304 ha), the site is located across both West Suffolk and Braintree District Authority areas, and has capacity for up to 5,000 new homes alongside additional community facilities including new schools, local centres, employment and leisure use.

As the second largest settlement in West Suffolk, with direct road access to Cambridge located just 20 miles away, Haverhill has been identified as a key growth area due to its proximity to employment areas including Cambridge, the M11 corridor and Stansted Airport.

The transport and growth agenda being pursued in Cambridgeshire and across the wider region, including the CamOx growth arc and future proposals for the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM) to connect Haverhill with the wider area, strengthens the case for future strategic scale residential growth around the town.

A Vision For Haverhill

The Vision Document which can be downloaded from this page has been commissioned by Catesby Estates as part of representations to the Issues and Options consultation of the emerging West Suffolk Local Plan.

It sets out our emerging ideas for future growth of Haverhill, and how the creation of a long term comprehensive vision for growth to the south west of the town could continue to deliver on the objectives outlined in the Haverhill Vision 2031 as well as help meet the growth needs of both West Suffolk and Braintree districts over the next 20 years.

Our proposals are at a very early stage of the process, and it will be some considerable time before our proposals evolve further and a planning application is submitted.

Our emerging concept masterplan shows how the key principles and structuring elements translate into the distinctive, characterful neighbourhoods of Haverhill Vales. The concept masterplan is the first step in defining what Haverhill Vales could be. It would form the basis of discussion with local groups to inform subsequent masterplans.

Three Proposed Neighbourhoods

We envisage each neighbourhood as a self-contained, recognisable place. Hazel Brook, Horseham Valley and Greatley Glades will each have their own centre of gravity, with a local primary school, a mix of community boosting uses (such as a nursery, a cafe, community spaces, healthcare facilities), workplaces and homes for different ages and incomes, to strengthen the sense of identity  and belonging.

Hazel Brook would be a charming, compact neighbourhood filled with life and activity.

Horseham Valley could be an exemplar of an English village, defined by the valley’s slopes and a winding stream running through generous open space.

Greatley Glades could be rooted in the bioheritage of the land - a woodland was once here, its remnants still present as small blocks of ancient woodland.
