Work is about to get under way to build 32 new homes on a former car park in Hunstanton.
The development, which includes six affordable properties, will be on Southend Road.
Richard Blunt, the borough councillor responsible for regeneration and development, said: “This is an excellent scheme. It will provide new homes, with priority given to local people, it has been designed to high standards and it will benefit the town’s economy.”
The £6.8m scheme is the result of a partnership between the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and development firm Lovell. The funding includes a £520,000 Homes England grant under its Accelerated Construction Programme, which helps authorities to deliver new homes more quickly.
The design of the scheme is inspired by the town’s Victorian heritage, with the homes built around a central courtyard.
When sold, the flats will have covenants on them requiring owners to use the property as their main home, so they are not used as holiday homes or lets, until all local demand has been satisfied.
