This site was sold to Bellway in September 2019.

The site comprised an arable field situated at the southern edge of Haughley and lay within the administrative area of Mid Suffolk District Council.

Mid Suffolk District Council granted outline planning permission for 65 new homes including 35% affordable housing on the 11.6 acre site, west of Fishponds Way in March 2019.

Part of the site had been allocated for housing in the emerging Neighbourhood Plan.  Catesby worked closely with the Parish Council, Neighbourhood Plan Group and Ward Councillor to deliver a scheme that was sensitively designed and in keeping with the village character.

The proposals included a range of community benefits including, new public open space, community garden, allotments, traffic calming measures on Fishponds Way and a bridge over the River Gipping to help deliver the long desired continuous pedestrian and cycle link between the village and Stowmarket.  

As a result of the extensive consultation approach, the scheme was supported by the Parish Council, with members of the Planning Committee following the Planning Officer’s advice and unanimously voting to approve the application.
