£3.4m project to demolish former snooker club brings more homes to Haverhill
Almost 80 Havebury Housing tenants have moved in to a brand new collection of affordable flats and houses on the site of a former snooker club in Haverhill.
The 21 homes in Chalkstone Way were part-funded through a £380,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency and comprise largely two-bedroom flats, and three-bedroom houses.
The £3.4m project, which was overseen by architects Ingleton Wood and built by housing developer specialist Lovell, was designed to complement the riverside site, affording residents with an impressive view.
Other benefits of the site include large amounts of green space, particularly to the front of these new homes.
Karen Mayhew, Havebury Chief Executive, said:
“There is great demand for affordable housing within this area and we are delighted to be able to provide 21 much-needed homes to local people.
Great effort with this site has been made to ensure it is in keeping with the surrounding area, and we hope our tenants will be very happy in their new homes.”
