Haverhill Healthcheck

  • Do you have constructive views which could contribute to a better Haverhill?
  • Are you interested in getting more involved in shaping a plan of action for Haverhill's future?

If you answered yes to just one of the above questions then read on, because between June and November this year, you have a chance to influence Haverhill's future!

Is Haverhill in good health to face the future

The Market Towns Initiative, launched by the Government in 2001, and now being conducted in Haverhill, provides the town with a great opportunity to:

  • Bring residents of the town and surrounding countryside together
  • Involve all ages and sections of our community
  • Identify our communities Strengths and Weaknesses
  • Listen to what people have to say
  • Allow people to get actively involved in developing plans for Haverhill's future

Haverhill Healthcheck Progress

The first stage of the Heathcheck process is to get people involved, find out their views, opinions and ideas.

This research is currently underway in Haverhill and is being done in a variety of different ways:


Interviews and Questionnaires



People are being interviewed on the streets of Haverhill and its surrounding hinterland - the reason you're reading this is possibly as a result of just such an interview!

These interviews are intended to find out what people's true views are about a broad range of issues which affect their lives.

Self-complete questionnaires have gone into Haverhill's Middle, Upper and Independent Schools for children of 11 years and upwards to complete.

Amongst other things, these will identify how the young people of Haverhill spend their time and how they use the town.

Business Views

Questionnaires will shortly be provided to local businesses as well, inviting them to develop a picture of their feelings concerning issues related to trading, employment, and links with the community, etc.

As Haverhill's ever expanding business community plays such an important role within the town, your views will be a vital source of information needed for making the Haverhill Healthcheck a success.


Local Groups



Local groups, associations, clubs, etc., being identified who might wish to get involved or have a view. Indeed, you might be a member of one which you feel should be involved, if so, let us know.
