Norwich & surrounding suburbs, villages & towns have been witness to a massive surge in new housing in recent years. From Little Plumstead through to Sprowston, Watton to Wreningham, Costessey to Wymondham, Surlingham to Old Buckenham, Dereham to Attleborough, Holt to Thetford. The list is, like our Norfolk skies – endless.
Keeping just the positives in mind this is great news for local communities – more housing, more amenities, more businesses & increased employment opportunities. One issue for many in Norfolk, however, has always been the availability of ultrafast broadband.
So why are Tiles Away talking about housing developments?
More housing developments means more demand for fantastic tiles. Evidence of this is we are seeing more demand from areas benefitting from ultrafast broadband.
BT are rolling out ultrafast broadband in many areas covered by Tiles Away. Apparently, 9 Norfolk towns will benefit from ultrafast broadband:
- Great Ellingham,
For so many who have campaigned year in, year out this is a long-awaited welcome, which will appeal to even more people wanting to move their families to our fine county of Norfolk.
As an independent company, we love living & working in Norfolk. It’s a pleasure to be part of so much positive change.
More housing and business developments; mean more demand for Tiles.
Yes, investment in land and technology translates to more housing developments and more businesses opening up – all within reach of Tiles Away.
A large proportion of these new housing developments & businesses will be requiring tiles. This is great news for our Norwich & our Attleborough independent Norfolk tile shops as we supply to both trade & domestic customers.
Further proof of an expanding Norfolk can be found with the vision for more schools being in the pipeline.
As well as 4000 new homes being built, Attleborough also looks to be getting 2 new schools. Nearby villages of Hethersett & Cringleford also look to be expanding by 2500 plus houses along with two new schools.
Local schools including Little Melton will be adapted to taking on larger capacities too. The EDP reports “In Wymondham, a new primary school, estimated to cost £8m, is being designed for Silfield, while the council has noted options for growth at Wymondham High Academy and Wymondham College, including a £4.5m renovation project at the former school for which plans have been submitted.” In another report from the EDP’s Luke Powell, council bosses have been told that between 2018 and 2036, they must provide almost 43,000 new homes in Greater Norwich area.
Other areas of new housing developments include Long Stratton and Hellesdon, Scarning, Horsford, Toftwood, Hoveton, Easton, Blofield, Trowse, Poringland. Most of our custom comes through word of mouth and recommendation.
