Norfolk County Council have sent notice that the permissive path from the telephone exchange on Norwich Road to Mill Lane will close from the week commencing 27th March as the contractors move on to the site to start work.
The plans for the 137 new homes do include a pedestrian access onto Mill Lane (and emergency vehicle access) and another pedestrian access onto the unmade track at the top of Mill Lane, but these will not be available until the site is safe to be opened to public access.
For any intermediate tenure properties (such as shared ownership or shared equity) there is a new Help to Buy agent to register with and gives applicants access to any new build or resales of affordable home ownership products across the district:-
For applicants who previously registered with Help to Buy East South East for affordable home ownership products they will now need to re-register with the new agent above as H2B ESE no longer covers Norfolk.
The application has been submitted to Broadland District Council
