600 homes plan for council company
21 February 2020
More than 600 homes are set to be developed by the county council’s development company, over the next five years.
Repton Property Developments Ltd, set up by Norfolk County Council, works with developers to obtain planning permission and provide housing on council land.
Councillor Andrew Proctor, the council’s leader and a chairman of Repton, said: “Repton is delivering our ambitious vision of developing high-quality housing in Norfolk.
“We are looking to build much-needed homes, as well as generating income for the county council. Our Acle and Hopton sites alone should generate a profit of more than £9 million, after tax.”
Repton’s first phase of sites, working with Lovell Partnerships Ltd, include:
- Land north of Norwich Road, Acle – this has already received conditional planning approval
- Land east of Lowestoft Road, Hopton on Sea
- Land south of New Road, Attleborough
- Land east of Hargham Road, Attleborough
The second phase of smaller sites, working with Torrington Property Ltd, include:
- Land west of St Nicholas Drive, Caister on Sea
- Former Lingwood School site
- Land at High Station, Cromer
The council’s cabinet is recommended to approve Repton’s annual business plan when it meets at 10am on Monday, 2 March. The report is available to download. The meeting will be webcast live and a recording available to view afterwards.
