Housing plans for Norwich develop

January 12, 2019 by  

A variety of housing developments are planned in the Norwich area, which would give the city hundreds of new homes.

However, the complexity of the planning system means that there is still some uncertainty with regard to specific completion dates.

Orbit Homes has already started work on a project in the vicinity of St Anne’s Wharf. Over 400 residences are envisaged as part of a mixed-use development. The refurbishment of Howard House is currently underway as the initiative has got the green light. When new developments are completed, printing services are often called upon to help showcase new amenities to the public.

Meanwhile, Weston Homes is unsure when its Anglia Square scheme can go ahead. The vision would mean that over 1,200 homes are built. The local authority has given its consent to the proposal. Nevertheless, a planning inquiry might be necessary. Work has been put on hold because Historic England has lodged an objection because the suggestion of a high tower has generated controversy.

Progress could be achieved in Norwich’s Barrack Street. Around 200 residences might be constructed in the neighbourhood. A housebuilder from Essex, Hill and Jarrold (St James Ltd), lodged plans back in September. Earlier plans for accommodation on the site came to nothing because of a downturn in the property market. In a matter of months, a decision on the submitted plan will be made.
