Another phase of the £30m Hillington Square regeneration project in King’s Lynn has been completed.

The block of 44 homes has been named Eldridge Court in honour of Jack Albert D Eldridge, a decorated Second World War veteran who died in 2000 and has family with ties to the square.

The work has been completed by contractors Lovell on behalf of Lynn-based Freebridge Community Housing.

The project, which started in 2013, has seen the completion of work at Colby Court, Millfleet Court and Valentine Place.

The latest phase has meant work on 202 of the original 320 homes in the 1960s development has now been finished and three more phases remain.

New tenants have been moving back into Eldridge Court which comprises three three-bed maisonettes, 17 two-bed maisonettes, eight two-bed flats, eight one-bed flats and eight studio flats.

Freebridge chief executive Tony Hall said: “We continue to be hugely proud of the work that’s been completed at Hillington Square and it’s fantastic to see people moving back into their new homes.

“We are now past the half–way point of the project, although there is still plenty to do to ensure we complete the remaining work at Hillington Square to the same high quality as the earlier phase. We will shortly begin a number of new tender exercises in respect of the work still to be done, which will see us start on the next phase next year.”
