Saffron Housing are very proud to be PlaceShapers August star builder!
We are on track to deliver 445 homes in the next three years, part of 88,000 PlaceShapers will build by 2022.
In the past two years Saffron have built 649 new homes with a range of tenures throughout East Anglia. This forms part of 52,000 delivered by PlaceShapers in the last six years.
In 2016/17 of the 329 homes completed by Saffron, 268 were for affordable rent and 41 low-cost ownership homes such as shared ownership.
Among our newest residents are Bryan and Katie (pictured below right) who now live in a two bedroom flat in Stalham, Norfolk having been given notice by their private landlord. Bryan said: “Our baby daughter Rosie has lived in three places in her first 10 weeks so it’s great to know we have somewhere she can finally settle! We are so excited – a brand spanking new home and it’s beautiful, just beautiful!”
Some of Saffron’s additional homes are S106s in small market towns which are hoping that new development will revitalise town centres and help support the community facilities such as shops, schools and leisure facilities. One town is Stalham in the Broadland District Council area of Norfolk where Bryan and Katie have just moved into their new home.
In Inside Housing’s Top 50 Biggest Builders survey for 2016/17 Saffron was second for percentage of growth of stock – in that period their stock increased by 5.6%.
