The borough council has signed contracts with partners Freebridge Community Housing and Lovell Homes to start developing 78 one, two and three bedroom properties in Salters Road, King’s Lynn.

Work to develop the properties, off Columbia Way in North Lynn, started on 9 January 2023. Piling works are expected to last for around 16 weeks and properties will be transferred to Freebridge Community Housing to deliver affordable housing, including shared ownership.

Cllr Richard Blunt, Cabinet member for Development and Regeneration at the borough council, said:

“I’m pleased that we can work with partners Freebridge Community Housing and Lovell Homes. They’re two organisations that already shape a lot in west Norfolk and understand the area. 68 of these properties will be affordable rentable properties through Freebridge and the remaining 10 will be available for shared ownership.  

“PV, solar panels, will be installed where the orientation of the property can benefit from it. Residents to the area will benefit from good access to the town centre and local amenities like Lynnsport.”

Paul Newbold, Director of New Homes and Commercial at Freebridge, said:

"It is fantastic to see this long-awaited scheme take this important step forward in getting into contract and works starting on site.

"It'll be great to deliver much needed affordable housing in this central location, in partnership with the borough council and Lovell and supported by Homes England funding. 

"With the borough council having already completed much of the necessary ground works we are looking forward to seeing the first homes available for occupation in the Autumn of this year (2023)."

Simon Medler, regional managing director of Lovell, said:

“Once this project is complete, we will have worked with the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk to deliver over 500 much needed homes to the area. This new 78-home site is in a prime location and we are confident that it will prove popular with fantastic facilities nearby such as Alive Lynnsport and local schools, shops and restaurants, and a real sense of community.”
