New plans for homes on former 2 Sisters poultry plant at Haughley Park




New proposals for 134 homes in Haughley will be considered by Mid Suffolk planners.

A planning application for the former poultry processing plant at Haughley Park includes community open space, employment buildings, a new community building, sports pitches and a community orchard.

The scheme has changed to address concerns raised over a previous application for 149 homes, which was refused by the council in February on the grounds of being unsustainable.

Applicant Amber REI Holdings Ltd is seeking outline permission for the new development between Elmswell and Haughley, on the site of the former 2 Sisters factory and adjacent to a Grade I-listed Jacobean manor.

A design and access statement submitted with the new plans said: "The overarching vision for Haughley Park Green is to create an attractive and high quality neighbourhood which responds positively to its surroundings."

The previous proposal stumbled because planning officers found it would be too far from amenities – forcing residents to use cars to access shops and schools – and that children living on the new development would over-populate nurseries and primary schools in Elmswell and Haughley.
