Award winning developer Crest Nicholson has received a resolution to grant planning permission for Henley Gate, a significant new mixed use development in Ipswich, which will form part of the Ipswich Garden Suburb.
Crest Nicholson’s proposal will deliver a new neighbourhood, modelled on garden suburb principles providing 1,100 homes, a 30-hectare Country Park with a visitor centre, in addition to a local centre, a two-form entry primary school, sports pitches, and a community centre and retail units.
To support potential buyers to get their first step on the housing ladder, 15 per cent of the 165 units, will be allocated as affordable housing and available on a joint equity scheme.
Andrew Dobson, Managing Director for Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects said, “We are thrilled to move ahead with our plans to build a new neighbourhood for Ipswich. This application is the result of many years of consultation, and we thank all of the residents, stakeholders and the wider community who helped to shape the final plans.”
