Case study: Haverhill Retail Park

Howard Group identified the opportunity to develop a retail park on the Ehringshausen Way site in Haverhill, which created c 150 jobs and regenerated a former factory site near Haverhill town centre.

Following extensive public consultation and discussions with key local stakeholders, Howard Group submitted a planning application for its proposed development in late 2015. The application was approved in July 2016 and development commenced in September.

LOCATION: Ehringshausen Way, Haverhill
PROGRAMME: Completed August 2017
VALUE: £8m

The retail park offers high quality retail accommodation with large landscaped parking areas. Pre-let agreements were completed with Lidl, Pets at Home and Home Bargains, with a further retail unit marketed to national retailers. As part of the planning consent Howard Group funded a new pedestrian crossing on Ehringshausen Way as well as gifting a parcel of land to the St Edmundsbury Borough Council to extend the county wildlife site, alongside the old Haverhill railway line.


Howard Group has also secured an outline consent for employment uses on a further two acres to the rear of the retail park. This is now being actively promoted to potential occupiers in a bid to bring further jobs and investment to the town.

The Ehringshausen Way site in Haverhill is near the town centre.
