Norwich: 1000 New Homes Plan
Plans for 1000 new homes in the Bowthorpe area of Norwich have been given the go-ahead by planners at the City Council.
The committee decided the development in Three Score area , which, as well as homes, will also include a care home, a new village centre including at least one shop, and public open space, should be approved.
This means work, which will see in its first phase the building of around 180 homes to include 47 council-owned – the first in more than 20 years – and eight shared equity, can start soon.
Councillor Brenda Arthur, leader of Norwich City Council said:
“The council and HCA partnership has as its key priority the provision of homes and jobs to the city because this is what matters most to residents.
The homes we need are a real mix - from those to be rented privately, to those for people on the social housing register to others for families looking to buy their first home - and this development looks at going a long way to meeting this need.
Building these homes will also give a meaningful boost to the jobs market including demonstrating our commitment to making sure at least 10 per cent of the contractor workforce will be made up of either young people breaking into the jobs market or those who have been unemployed.”
