Jaynic has sold a 13.84-acre site at Weaver’s View, Haverhill to Taylor Wimpey, with potential for up to 155 new homes, with a 30 per cent affordable allocation.
The site is situated on the western edge of Haverhill, forming a gateway site, with easy access to Cambridge on the A1307. It is the second Haverhill site Jaynic have sold to Taylor Wimpey, the first being the 150 unit ‘Arboretum’ scheme in 2014.
Haverhill’s location lends itself to be able to take advantage of Cambridge’s economy and the wider southern technology cluster, and consequently has a high level of out-commuters, causing a surge in housing demand due to it being more affordable.
The new homes at Weaver’s View would utilise this demand, aimed especially at first time buyers, but also with mass-market appeal from the M11 corridor and the wider area surrounding Cambridge.
Jaynic director Andrew Anderson said “We are very pleased to have concluded the sale of the site to Taylor Wimpey with whom we have a close relationship having undertaken schemes in association with them here in Haverhill and in Bury St Edmunds. Weaver’s View provides an attractive setting in a semi-rural location, with attractive views out to open countryside whilst benefiting from excellent nearby amenities and transport connections to surrounding regional centres, notably Cambridge to the north west.”
Taylor Wimpey managing director Bryn Maidman said “We are delighted to reaffirm our commitment to Haverhill with this latest purchase of land in the area. Our plans include the delivery of 155 new homes, as well as improvements to landscaping, areas of public open space and local infrastructure. We look forward to working with Jaynic again, who we have a long-established relationship with as a fellow Suffolk business who shares our values of placemaking and community involvement. We are excited for work to start on site and anticipate the first homes to be ready for sale in 2023.”
Cheffins and Cushman & Wakefield acted as agents for the sale of the site on behalf of Jaynic.
