Consultation about plans for additional affordable homes at three sites in Great Yarmouth borough
Residents and local businesses are invited to have their say on plans to provide up to 42 additional affordable council homes at three sites in the Great Yarmouth borough for those in housing need.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is working with Broadland Housing Association to deliver 16 new homes on land at Crab Lane, Gorleston, 18 on part of Beach Coach Station car park plus eight off Great Northern Close in Great Yarmouth. The flats will be let through the Council Housing Association Scheme.
The homes will all be one-bedroom flats suitable for housing up to two people, along with communal garden areas and dedicated car parking. The flats will be built over two or three storeys, depending on location.
This pre-planning consultation is to seek views on the proposals to develop the sites and the indicative designs. The consultation is open between Thursday, October 15 and Thursday, October 29.
Cllr Andy Grant, chairman of the housing committee, said "These plans are a fantastic opportunity to provide additional affordable homes as part of our ongoing Housing Strategy in the borough.
"Increasing the delivery of suitable housing has been a priority of the councils for many years now and we are striving to meet the varied housing needs of our community."
