Ingleton Wood’s Planning Team have secured planning permission for a new development consisting of 18 affordable homes on Albany Road, Lowestoft.
The plans were designed and submitted on behalf of developer Orwell Housing and Waveney District Council - it is thought that work will begin early this summer with a 12 month build phase to follow.
Replacing an existing car park, the development will comprise of 12 one-bedroom flats and six two-bedroom flats, all for affordable rent.
The scheme was given the go ahead earlier this month and will help Lowestoft’s identified need for new, lost cost homes.
Located in a prominent position on the northern gateway into the town centre, the development also includes associated parking and cycle storage. Six public parking spaces will also be available along the access road.
Kirsten Zuk, Architect at Ingleton Wood, said: “Ingleton Wood is delighted to have played a major role in a development which stands to bring such positive benefits to Lowestoft.
“These new homes on Albany Road will be attractive, comfortable and affordable places to live.”
Greg Dodds, New Business Manager at Orwell Housing, commented: “There is an identified housing need in Lowestoft and a real desire for more affordable housing. With this development of 18 affordable residential units we hope to play a part in addressing those needs.”
Justin Hunt, Head of Housing at Waveney District Council, said: “We are committed to a programme of new development in Lowestoft and Waveney to meet local housing needs and these new properties are a further example of the ongoing work to achieve our aims.”
