One hundred and thirty seven Council-backed homes for Acle

19 December 2019

County Council-backed plans for 137 new homes in Acle have been approved and work should start in the spring, subject to planning conditions being met.

The Norwich Road scheme is the first to be submitted by Norfolk County Council’s company, Repton Homes and includes 45 affordable units, including shared ownership homes. The application was approved by Broadland District Council’s planning committee yesterday (18th), subject to a meeting a number of conditions that Repton is confident it can comply with.

Council leader Councillor Andrew Proctor, chairman of Repton Homes, said: “This is the first of our schemes to bring about high-quality housing in Norfolk. We are looking to build much-needed homes, as well as generating income for the County Council.”

Repton’s development partner is leading Norwich-based developer, Lovell. Simon Medler, regional managing director at Lovell, said, when the application was submitted: “This development will bring high quality and affordable homes to Acle, as well as other benefits for the local economy and community, such as employment, new apprenticeships and training opportunities.”

The development will have a mix of bungalows and two to four-bedroom houses. Work is due to start on site in spring 2020.

Repton’s next planning application, for 200 homes at Hopton, will be submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council soon.


The conditions relate to:

  • Final design of the surface water drainage
  • Boundary treatments to the adjoining properties
  • Access for upgraded refuse vehicles
  • Accommodating safeguards to the water supply for a private well to the south of the site
