Work is expected to start on site next month on an £80M housing project in King’s Lynn after Lovell was selected as preferred developer by King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council.

 

The council plans to build around 600 new homes in the Lynnsport and Marsh lane area of the town by September 2020. Appointment of Lovell as the preferred bidder is subject to approval by full council on 30 October.

 

If approved, initial works on site could begin almost immediately, with work on the first phase of housing due to start in October 2015.

 

300 of the new homes will be for sale on the open market with 200 earmarked for private rent and a further 100 allocated as affordable housing. The scheme is expected to include provision of two new synthetic sports pitches, the creation of new football pitches, a cricket pitch and new changing rooms

 

Council cabinet member for regeneration Alistair Beales said: “This is a major project for the area. We are working in partnership with Norfolk County Council and the Internal Drainage Board to bring forward a new access road and improved drainage which is all part of this exciting development.

 

“It will help provide much needed accommodation in the town as well as helping to stimulate local economic activity both directly and indirectly.

 

“We also hope that it will help create jobs and encourage apprenticeships.”

 

Lovell regional director Tony Tann said: “We’re extremely proud that Lovell is set to be appointed as preferred bidder for this important development which will deliver significant benefits locally.

 

Lovell is currently working in King’s Lynn on Freebridge Community Housing’s £30M housing regeneration programme in the town’s Hillington Square estate.
