The scheme, at Rectory Close, off Denny’s Walk, includes 31 homes for affordable and social rent as well as two owner/occupier properties.

The homes – a mixture of one-, two- and three-bedroom bungalows and one four-bedroom house – replace 12 post-war Airey and Swedish prefabricated houses which had previously been on the site.

These properties were no longer fit for purpose, with half of them having fallen empty.

Six families who had lived in the old Airey houses have relocated into the high quality and modern new homes. Two owner/occupier homes were also replaced on the site.

Elizabeth Truss, MP for South West Norfolk, attended the launch.

She said: “It was great to meet the team behind the new development in Narborough. Housing is in high demand so to have more affordable homes in the area is extremely positive - I was delighted to have the chance to chat with local residents and look round the new properties.”

As well as the new homes, further improvements to the site have been made with the creation of a new public space and four speed bumps installed as a traffic calming measure.

The scheme, which has attracted £558,000 in funding from Homes England, has been delivered with the support of the Homes and Communities Agency, Breckland Council and Narborough Parish Council.

Tony Tann, managing director of Flagship Developments, said: “Our work on this development allows us to provide great quality homes on this site for many more people than before.

“Through this scheme, we are meeting housing need, and we are pleased to be providing the majority of these homes at affordable rent.

“It is particularly good to see families who lived in the former Airey houses moving into these new homes.”

Peter Wilkinson, a Narborough district and parish councillor, said: “I have championed this scheme from the very beginning as I saw it as an opportunity for families to have not just a house but a beautiful home.

“This has realised a dream as buying a house is out of reach for any families. I was really happy with the vision that Flagship had for this site.”

Work on the development began in summer 2016 and was completed in early 2019.
