South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss was among the guests at the official unveiling of a development of 33 homes at Narborough.

The Flagship Group, which has offices in Norfolk and Suffolk, unveiled the homes in Rectory Close, off Denny’s Walk, on Tuesday.

Redevelopment of former Airey and prefabricated houses started in 2016 and there is now a mix of modern one, two and three bedroomed bungalows and one four-bedded house.  

The site has 31 affordable homes for rent and two owner/occupied properties. Six families who occupied some of the Airey homes have been rehoused in the development, which attracted £558,000 funding from Homes England. The new scheme has included a public open space and some traffic-calming measures in Denny’s Walk.

Ms Truss said: “Housing is in high demand so to have more affordable homes in the area is extremely positive.”

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

Peter Wilkinson, a Breckland and Narborough councillor, said the development had “realised a dream as buying a house was out of reach for many”.
