Lovell has been selected for a £7.9m residential and commercial scheme bringing new homes to South Norfolk.
Big Sky Developments – a company owned by South Norfolk Council – has appointed partnership housing developer Lovell to deliver a £7.9 million scheme to create 50 much-needed new homes and 800 sq m of commercial space in the village of Long Stratton, South Norfolk.
Construction recently got under way on the Maple Park development which will create 50 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes and a modern office block on land close to South Norfolk Council’s offices in Swan Lane. The new homes include five affordable homes with the other properties available for open market sale through Big Sky Developments.
Councillor John Fuller, leader of South Norfolk Council, says: “I am really excited that work on Maple Park has started. The development will bring enormous benefits to the local community, including employment, affordable housing and a range of office space to suit businesses of all sizes. Maple Park is a fabulous development that marries economic opportunities with housing growth, a place where people will want to live and work.”
Lovell regional director Simon Medler says: “Imaginative developments of this kind ensure that flourishing communities such as Long Stratton continue to thrive and grow. Our team has a strong record of delivering high-quality affordable and open market homes, as well as smart, modern business accommodation. We’re delighted to be working with Big Sky Developments on this important community scheme, using our expertise in constructing residential and commercial premises built and finished to the highest standards.”
The new development will be built using a state-of-the-art steel frame construction method. The scheme is set for completion in autumn 2017.
