This site was bought by the council through a compulsory purchase order last year. The homes here will be designed to a high environmental standard, using a ‘fabric first’ approach, to reduce energy use and minimise bills for future residents.

This is a great development for the city and adds to the city council’s growing housing stock. It also sends a strong message to private owners who fail to develop their assets, that the City Council will not stand by and allow land that could be put to good social use sit idle and be wasted. We will always seize every opportunity to build desperately-needed top quality homes for Norwich people in our city”
