|Haverhill Feasibility Study||2013||Haverhill||UK||Masterplanning|
Completed: 2013 – On Going
Client: Haverhill Vision
Haverhill is a market town situated 16 miles from the city of Cambridge and a further 65 miles from Central London. Although having no direct train link running from London, it is well serviced by local buses from Cambridge. This makes it a viable option for commuters from both cities as a place to live but also an alternative place to reside which still retains all the charm of the typical English town.
This feasibility study considers the high street and the potential for expanding beyond. The focus is to look at areas and pockets of land which directly connect with the main, linear high street.
A wider focus of this feasibility is to use Haverhill as a example town as to what contributes to the decline of the high street, something we have seen much of over this past decade. The focus is on what regeneration and development can do to address this.
