Fentons Farm, Great Whelnetham
In July 2014, Havebury met with local residents at a public consultation event held in Great Whelnetham Village Hall to consult on possible plans for residential development on the Fentons Farm site.
This land has been allocated for residential development in St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Rural Vision 2031 Plan, with an indicative capacity of 10 homes as a guide to the scale of the development.
After listening to feedback from the public consultation, Havebury has substantially redesigned the plans to provide just one point for vehicular access via Hambrook Close and to reduce the number of houses to 12 with a more traditional design.

It is the intention that the new houses will now be aimed at home ownership with the inclusion of open market sale and shared ownership, although this will be developed through ongoing liaison with the Council, should planning approval be obtained.
At this stage, our intention is to submit a planning application in late May/early June 2016 with an expected decision in autumn 2016.
