High demand expected at Greenacres
11 May 2013
Demand is expected to be high for an exciting new development of homes on the edge of the thriving market town of Diss, NorfolkPersimmon Anglia has submitted detailed plans to build a lovely mix of two, three and four bedroom houses in this stunning rural location, as well as 12 one and two bedroom bungalows.
Of the 85 new properties, 28 will be affordable housing for the community.
The new homes will be even more desirable because of where they are, on the very edge of some of South Norfolk’s most beautiful open countryside. Surrounded by the beautiful Waveney Valley countryside and wetland with footpaths and bridleways, Greenacres is just a short distance by car from the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts and under 25 miles from Norwich city centre.
The homes will be built on a partially developed site between Denmark Lane and Old High Road in Diss, which was first granted planning permission for 114 units back in 2009. Persimmon’s new properties will add to the previous developer’s 29 already occupied homes at the site.
James Nicholls, Land Manager for Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “If approved, Greenacres will create a sustainable development that will have a positive impact on both Diss and its people.
“The proposed design has been developed with regard to both South Norfolk’s Place Making Guide 2012 and also Building for Life 12. The planning application includes public open space, vehicular access and associated infrastructure.”
Managing Director for Persimmon Anglia, Andrew Fuller, added: “Our proposals are for a wide mix of house types from one to four bedroom properties which will cater for everyone from first time buyers to large families.
“We will be offering a range of assistance schemes at Greenacres to help get people moving, including Part Exchange and the government’s new shared equity scheme, Help To Buy, which will be available on all properties and requires just a five per cent deposit.”
Prospective buyers are encouraged to register their interest by completing the ‘keep me updated’ form on the development webpage. Those registered will be invited to the exclusive launch later in the year.
