Orbit Housing affordable homes for Yarmouth

PUBLISHED: 09:56 09 December 2010

Orbit East Housing Association has announced the completion of a 16-flats development in Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth, providing a much-needed boost to the area.

Residents will be moving into the two-bedroom flats during December and it is expected to be fully occupied by the end of this month.

Orbit East gained funding for the scheme from the Homes and Communities Agency and worked in partnership with building contractor ISG Jackson and Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s planning department which had extensive input into the selection of materials used, helping to enhance the 
quality.

The building, which includes lift-access, is a timber-frame construction with external brick skin, while 
the ground floor has under-croft 
parking, storage areas and office space.

Orbit East’s assistant development director Paul Bonnett said: “The opening of these new homes has been the result of a great deal of dedicated work.

“With the demand for good-quality, affordable homes in the area being so high, this represents an important step towards meeting this need. The homes have been sensitively designed to contribute positively to the appearance of Yarmouth.”
