Region plans 275 new homes for Wymondham
04 August 2012
Persimmon Anglia has pledged to deliver much-needed new homes in the market town of Wymondham
An outline planning application has been submitted which would see up to 275 houses and bungalows built at a site on Norwich Road, after extensive consultation with the local community.
Andrew Fuller, managing director of Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “Our proposal will create a range of well-designed homes, from one to four bedrooms, with a predominantly traditional feel in keeping with the area.
“The plan also includes four acres of public open space and a strong emphasis has been put on retaining existing hedgerows and trees.
“The application follows a very positive and supportive public consultation and exhibition held at Fairland Church in Wymondham in March, with feedback concerning highways and drainage helping to shape the proposals.
“We have taken on board the views of local residents and those of the Council’s Design Officer in putting together an approach which ensures a high quality landscaped development that reflects local character whilst making a design statement at this major entrance to the town.
“The majority of the properties will be two storey homes, although ten per cent of the development is planned as bungalows.”
Mr Fuller added that the proposal fully conforms to national planning policy regarding the delivery of housing and sustainable growth and addresses the shortfall in five year housing land supply within the Norwich Policy Area and Wymondham.
“South Norfolk Council have started to look at allocating sites for housing in Wymondham through the Area Action Plan and our site represents a viable and deliverable option well situated to take advantage of local employment and other local services,” he concluded.
