Orbit Homes is looking to build 40 brand-new houses in Woolpit, Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
The homes, which will be located on Old Stowmarket Road, received funding from the Homes England Strategic Partnership scheme. The housebuilder says they will be 100% affordable.
Orbit Homes has partnered with Minster Property Group to acquire the site and says it will continue to work collaboratively to secure detailed planning permission.
The anticipated start date for the scheme is 2024, with work expected to conclude in 2026.
Ray Winney, Orbit Homes’ regional managing director, said: “We are delighted to develop these brand-new homes and create a thriving new community in Suffolk.
“This is our third direct build development in the area, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to delivering high-quality affordable homes in the East. I look forward to working with Minister Property Group to secure planning permission and seeing the site development over the coming years.”
Orbit Homes currently has nine new communities underway in East Anglia, consisting of a range of “affordable” two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, including what it says are some “rarely available” new build bungalows.
A mixture of purchasing options is available, it says, including market sale and shared ownership.
