Housebuilding Partnership to Deliver New Homes in Attleborough

Construction of a new residential development of 349 homes in Attleborough in Norfolk will begin this summer, with Latimer – the development arm of Clarion Housing Group – joining award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group to deliver vital housing options to local people.

Latimer consulted with local people in June 2021 to shape proposals for a new sustainable and mixed-tenure residential community, leading to an approved first phase planning application for the site. These plans, approved in January, will deliver an initial 153 new homes, including 56 affordable units – exceeding planning policy for local affordable housing provision.

Pending an approved detailed planning application for the site’s second phase, the wider 38.8-acre development will offer a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, with designs reflecting the varied aesthetic and character of regional architecture. The affordable units will be built in the same style as the private sale homes, creating a ‘tenure-blind’ scheme.

As well as providing vital new affordable housing for the town, the development will also offer a range of sustainable features. All homes will be gas-free and fitted with modern, air-source heat pumps to reduce the overall carbon footprint of the development. The plans also include new green space, walking routes, trees, a habitat pond and play areas to promote resident health and wellbeing.

The new homes will be located within walking distance of Attleborough town centre, supporting a ’20-minute Neighbourhood’ planning concept aiming to reduce road traffic and ensuring facilities such as shops and train stations remain close by.

Future joint work on the project will seek to improve Attleborough’s local infrastructure, including expanding nearby schools and the town’s library.
