Proposed development of 45 affordable homes in Isleham

Havebury's Information Event

We are working with The Lady Peyton’s Almshouse Charity on a development proposal. We want to build 45 affordable homes on the Land west of Station Road, Isleham.

The development will consist of a mixture of homes including 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom houses and 2 bedroom bungalows. Four of the homes will stay in the ownership of the Charity and add to their existing homes in the village. Whilst the remaining 41 will be available for affordable rent (including Shared Ownership)

When a proposal for a new scheme is going through, Havebury will conduct a ‘consultation event’. This type of event is usually hosted in the village/town where the development is set to take place. We like to encourage all local residents to come along to discuss the plans going forward. You can then can ask questions, voice concerns, and find out more about the proposal. All this feedback will then form part of the planning application.

Due to lockdown restrictions, we have had to adapt the way in which we consult with residents, especially when it comes to proposed new schemes. So, we have created a ‘virtual information event‘.

This is a platform accessible to everyone and it displays plans, photographs and proposed house designs. There is also an online feedback form with an accompanying FAQ’s document.

We want to ensure the consultation period receives as much coverage as possible whilst giving local people the opportunity to be part of Isleham’s future.

Alongside this online platform, we have sent information packs out to 250 local Isleham residents to encourage them to take part in this pre-planning process.
