Twenty-two new homes including 12 affordable are being built in a north Norfolk village.

Piority for the affordable rental homes on Holt Road, Edgefield, near Holt, will be given to local people once they are completed in summer 2020.

The £3.6m project will provide nine new homes for affordable rent and three for shared ownership, as well as ten new open market homes.

The homes are being built by Lowestoft-based contractor Wellington, and Broadland Housing Group executive development director Andrew Savage said: 'We are delighted to be working in partnership with Wellington on giving the people of Edgefield the opportunity to remain in the village.'

Wellington's managing director Paul Pitcher said: 'As a locally-based firm, we take great pride in building top quality affordable homes in the area.

'Not only is this providing much needed homes for local people, but it is also creating employment for local people as well.'
