Saffron, in partnership with Lovell Partnerships LTD have begun welcoming tenants into the first of 90 new, affordable homes at Lavender Meadow, Wymondham.
The development is being built on the site of the former home of the town’s rugby club, Wymondham RFC, and will offer a total of 90 homes - 61 social rented and 29 shared ownership properties. There will be a mix of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom houses and bungalows up for rent and shared ownership.
Construction is underway across the site and with completion taking place over six phases. The first three properties were handed their keys on 8th June 2023, with the next ten being handed over in July. The final phases are scheduled to be completed in late spring 2024.
All homes on the new site in Wymondham will be fitted with Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) which will provide enough heat and hot water for the homes whilst also lowering carbon emissions.
James Francis, Saffron's Chief Executive Officer, said: ““We are delighted that by working in partnership with Lovells we can provide much needed new, high quality affordable housing for the people of Wymondham.”
Mark Gosling, Construction Manager at Saffron, said: “The development at Lavender Meadow is progressing well and on target and we are proud to be delivering more affordable homes for our community. Our teams are working hard to complete the rest of the development and deliver more, energy efficient, new homes.”
Simon Medler, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “located in the pretty market town of Wymondham, these homes benefit from a sought-after location and are built with quality in mind. It is fantastic to see residents starting to move into them and enjoy everything they have to offer.”
