United Living New Homes’ subsidiary, Partner Construction, on behalf of Flagship Homes is building 73 affordable homes for a new housing development in Norfolk
Named Tower Mill, the development will consist of a mix of two-bedroom bungalows, one-bedroom walk-up flats and two, three and four bedroomed houses built on North Pickenham Road.
Homes England have pledged funding which will allow the properties to be available for shared ownership or affordable rent – this is essential to providing genuine affordability for residents and creating a diverse selection of housing opportunities for the local community.
It is expected that the new housing development in Norfolk will be finished by early 2024.
‘A welcome housing boost to the local community’
“We are delighted to have started building at Tower Mill. Working collaboratively with Flagship Homes, we look forward to delivering high-quality new homes that will provide a welcome housing boost to the local community.
“We pride ourselves on supporting people with our affordable homes and employing a workforce on site that will be made up of local labour and contractors. We are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes.”
‘‘Tower Mill’ was chosen as a nod to the local mill’
Tony Tann, managing director with Flagship Homes, added:
“The housing provision being created here in Necton will ensure that many local people and families will have access to quality affordable housing. It’s fantastic that work is now underway and we are pleased to have Partner Construction working with us, sharing in our vision to provide a huge housing boost to the area.
“The name ‘Tower Mill’ was chosen as a nod to the local mill in the village and we feel that this is a great starting point in the process of integrating this new development with the existing community. In addition, the beautiful rural location and open space is to be respected with landscaping plans already in pace, to ensure the scheme is in keeping with the surrounding area.”
