One thing that hasn’t changed is the trajectory of new homes being built in Norfolk. The construction industry is booming. And our tile selection is growing ever more to keep up with the latest trends and customer demands.
Scott properties are looking to build on a 193-acre site in Taverham and bringing more than 1500 new homes to life.
Halsbury Homes have submitted the plans for land off Green Lane East, in Rackheath which will bring a further 165 new homes to the area.
Developers Lovell & Flagship have also had outlined planning permission granted for 157 new homes in Rackheath under the affordable rent and shared ownership banner.
The area identified for housing growth within Norfolk includes Old Catton, Sprowston, Rackheath and Thorpe St Andrew. The overall plan is looking to deliver 7,000 new homes by 2026. Norwich is growing rapidly.
With the travel industry decimated, more people are faced with permanently working from home. One argument states that if you are spending less time travelling and more time working from home then you might want to be prioritising your budget towards home improvements. Certainly, this theory correlates with what our customers at Tiles Away are telling us.
Another 78 new affordable homes are set to be built in West Norfolk. La Ronde Wright tells us that there will be 12 one-bed, 42 two-bed and 24 three-bed houses.
Councillors have unanimously approved plans for 52 new homes on green land in Holt. Hopkins Homes will build 52 new homes, 23 under the affordable housing banner, adjacent to a Lovell Homes development for 212 dwellings.
In further news, Great Yarmouth councillors have given the go-ahead to tear down Gorleston Football Club’s Emerald Park and build 97 houses instead.
The great expansion continues at a rapid pace. Tiles Away will continue to monitor the figures released and continue to bring refreshing inspiration, fantastic new ranges and it’s well renowned superb customer service.
An interesting aside is that whilst all these development plans look like being actioned, the Ramblers Association are simultaneously and coincidently looking to save over 1000 miles of Norfolk footpaths and make them official… before all the land gets gobbled up?
