As you may be aware, outline planning permission was granted in 2018 for the development of land known as Great Wilsey Park in Haverhill to deliver 2,500 new homes, two new primary schools, two local centres, landscaping and other infrastructure.

Redrow Homes, one of the UK’s most successful and acclaimed housebuilders, has been selected by the landowner to bring forward the first residential development plots at Great Wilsey Park, delivering around 900 new market and affordable homes.

Planning background

In 2018, following the signing of the s106, outline planning permission (DC/15/2151/OUT) was granted by St Edmundsbury Borough Council for the development of Great Wilsey Park.

The outline permission agrees the amount of development, sets the development parameters and means of access.

The details relating to the scale, layout, appearance and landscaping will be brought forward through a Reserved Matters planning application which will be submitted later this year.

Redrow Homes is preparing to deliver homes on the first phase of the Great Wilsey Park site which is outlined in red on the illustrative master plan.

Redrow is an award-winning national housebuilder with a wealth of experience in delivering similar sites across the country. For more information about Redrow please visit www.redrow.co.uk.

The scheme that Redrow is preparing to deliver is being carefully planned to preserve and incorporate the extensive areas of woodland across the site and will be focussed around a new linear country park that will provide a diverse and attractive setting for the new development.
