Work is set to start on building 16 new affordable homes in north Norfolk.

Broadland Housing has announced that it will start building Phase 2 of its Hall Close development in Bodham in June.

The scheme of 16 properties includes a mix of affordable rent and shared ownership homes, supported by some open market homes.

The first Phase 2 properties are due to be completed in February, with the remainder in June 2018. Phase 1 of the Bodham scheme, consisting of 10 homes, was completed in February 2008.

'Construction of Phase 2 has been delayed until now because we've had to find a new way to fund affordable housing to replace Government grant funding. However, we're now able to proceed with this stunning new scheme,' explained Ed Mumford-Smith, Head of Development.

Broadland has appointed John Youngs, a Norwich-based subsidiary of RG Carter Group, as the main contractor. They are writing to existing Hall Close residents about the forthcoming works.

A spokesperson for the firm said: 'For any queries once construction is underway, please contact Carole Grimes, Development Administrator, Broadland Housing, on 01603 750115.'
