Construction Accesses

In February 2019 Redrow submitted plans to West Suffolk Council for a temporary holding area compound on land south of the A143 Haverhill Road. The proposed holding area will enable the management of all HGV deliveries to and from the site and contain key welfare facilities, vehicle parking and bulk material storage areas. A second application has been submitted for a temporary construction access off Chalkstone Way. This is required to facilitate the delivery of the homes in development plots in A7 and A8.

You can review these applications, including all plans, reports and supporting information, on the Council’s website at:

https://planning.westsuffolk.gov.uk/online-applications/

Separate construction accesses are a common feature of large development sites and are necessary to manage construction vehicles entering and leaving the site and maintain a high level of health and safety throughout the duration of construction work. The proposed temporary construction accesses that are required for this site are in addition to the permanent consented accesses for the development.

Internal Site Infrastructure

Redrow will be delivering infrastructure to facilitate the development of the new housing, including a new spine road, drainage and associated landscaping. To do this an Infrastructure Reserved Matters application is due to be submitted in early April, which will provide the detail on how internal site infrastructure is delivered.

Housing proposals

Later this year Redrow will be submitting a Reserved Matters application for the new homes proposed for development plots A1, A2 & A8. This will provide full details on how the development in these parcels will look, layout of the new homes and the landscaping. Redrow will be holding a public exhibition to allow residents to give their feedback and comments on Redrow’s emerging proposals for Phase 1 before the Reserved Matters application is submitted. Details can be found overleaf.

Redrow will also be giving further information about their plans for ecology, transport and construction at this consultation.
