New homes built at Nar Valley Park by housing developer Lovell, on behalf of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, are ready to be moved in to.
Cllr Graham Middleton, Deputy Leader at the borough council who visited the site recently, said: “This site in South Lynn is the latest in the borough council’s partnership with Lovell. Many houses are complete, they already have people moving in.
“The 105 much-needed housing being developed here include 37 that will be available to purchase on the open market, the majority of which are reserved, mostly by first time buyers. 52 of these properties will be available on the private rental sector. 11 of these properties are going to be available for affordable rent and five of them will be shared ownership.
“The interest in this development shows a real need for properties in the area. This partnership is providing homes for young people and local people. These properties are in a great location with excellent access to everything King’s Lynn has to offer.”
Simon Medler, Regional Managing Director for Lovell Partnerships, added: “The show houses and marketing suite are now open. The new homes are selling well. Progress on the site is very good.
“This is one of several developments in west Norfolk that we’re working on for the borough council. This is a really successful partnership, that’s delivering new homes for local people, here in King’s Lynn.”
Lovell has a strong record of working with local authorities and other partner organisations and will provide full development services to NORA 4, including managing the planning and design of the new homes, building them and supplying sales and aftercare services.
Cllr Stuart Dark MBE, Leader of the borough council, said: “We've made a significant investment to clean-up and improve this brownfield site. This investment has made it possible to build homes in a local and accessible location that would never have been developed commercially because of those up-front decontamination costs. This development of 105 much-needed new two- and three-bedroom homes in South Lynn uses a new building process that is more environmentally-friendly than traditional build and is in line with our commitment to build back better and greener in west Norfolk. The homes are also thermally efficient which will keep running costs down and reduce further impact on the environment.”
