Persimmon plans 140 new homes for Lakenheath
02 June 2021
Persimmon Suffolk has successfully finalised a land deal to bring 140 new homes to Lakenheath.
The 13.4 acres site at Eriswell Road, Lakenheath will include 42 affordable homes and significant areas of public open space, with walking routes for the local community.
The development will also generate financial contributions of £975,000 to support local infrastructure, through a section 106 agreement.
Ian Hamilton, managing director of Persimmon Suffolk, said: “Our plans for this site include homes to suit a range of buyers, from those looking to get on the property ladder for the first time to families seeking more space as they grow.
“Lakenheath is a popular area for buyers, especially local young families keen to stay within the area, so we expect there to be plenty of interest when we are able to release properties for sale.
“The land already has outline planning permission and we aim to submit a reserved matters application very soon, following extensive consultation with the Local Planning Authority.”
