Suffolk region starts work on 265-home development in Eye

13 December 2022

Suffolk region has started work on 265 new homes in the popular market town of Eye, Suffolk.

Castleton Grange will deliver the first phase of 265 new homes off Castleton Way in the town, supporting the local need for quality new housing. The first phase of 138 units will provide a range of two to five bedroom homes - with 20% of these transferred to a housing association partner - the development will feature a mix of rented, shared ownership and discounted market value properties.

Along with the boost to local housing needs, the scheme will bring £2.5 million in community benefits - including education, libraries, employment and biodiversity. Persimmon Homes is also providing extensive open space as well as additional car parking at Hartismere School, located close to the site.

Ian Hamilton, Managing Director for Suffolk region said: “This is a hugely exciting development to begin work on. Our planning approval includes a significant proportion of housing association partner homes as well as £2.5 million worth of community benefits, delivered through our Section 106 agreement with Mid Suffolk District Council.

“Construction beginning on site will enable us to deliver a range of properties which will suit a wide variety of local buyers. Our sales launch will take place in early 2023 with the opening of our sales complex off Castleton Way, where buyers will be able to speak to our team and learn more about the development. We’ve already had a number of people register their interest, so for those looking for a new home in the area, we recommend you sign up for updates on our website.”
