The development will comprise a mix of traditional houses and a number of apartments within two designated apartment blocks.

All of the homes will be delivered as affordable housing, which exceeds local planning policy requirements.

"It is a pleasure to continue working with our affordable housing partner Bromford on this development, which will have a real, positive impact for the local community.”
