A new development of 66 apartments fronting the River Wensum, on a vacant site next to the Novi Sad bridge in Norwich, will finally complete the jigsaw of the wider regeneration of Wherry Road.

Work has already started on the 0.62 acre site, which is one of the last in the area to be developed.

The one and two-bedroom apartments will include balconies with river views and will range in height from three to six storeys. They will also have secured undercroft parking and a raised amenity deck.

Generator Developments secured planning last year in a joint venture with the site owner and following its subsequent acquisition, it has now started construction on site.

It’s the second site in Norfolk acquired by Generator, which has recently secured consent for 105 new homes on seven acres in Blofield, near Norwich.

Paul Isaacs, managing director of Generator Developments, said: “This brownfield city centre site has been left vacant for a considerable number of years and is in much need of redevelopment in line with the regeneration of the surrounding area.

“We are actively looking for additional development opportunities across the region and hope to continue to contribute to the ongoing regeneration of the area.”

Marc Langdon, partner at Bidwells in Norwich, the agents for the site, said the quality apartments added to Norwich’s housing landscape.

He added: “Boasting green credentials, a high standard of specification and secure parking the development will be attractive to a broad demographic of buyers.”

Apartments should be ready for occupation at the end of 2015/early 2016.

  • Che Bramley I agree totally that we need more proper affordable housing particularly in the council and housing association rented sector. However I think provided the sale of these new flats is managed properly it will have a positive effect on the extending housing list. However the problem is in getting the sale managed properly. I am not opposed totally to capitalism and in the housing market it has a large number of positive effects as well as a number of negative ones. However the principles of fairness, decency, charity and society must come first. Which means the haves must not thrive upon the backs of the have nots.

  • Oh many bfamilies who have two cars need catering for, do they? Hopw about6 walking in a City and using a car from a shared car pool? Todays rise in train fares, once again a tarif to those who are actively choosing greener transport is a punsihment, inflicted by those toads who moronically demand more space for their cars to park, than for their children to play.

  • Wonderful to see that this go ahead council are responding to the dire need for affordable and social housing in such a visionary way. Love the vacuous soundbites by the way "broad demographic of buyers" and "adding to Norwich's housing landscape".

  • Good news and hopefully they can be persuaded to spread the development around to the wasteland around the Julian Bridge and St Anne's Wharf.

  • @blister - Excellent idea and an opinion well worth airing! Who could disagree with that... as long as you give up your house to somebody who wants one of their own and you go live on the wasteland.

  • Forget the car, build a secure cycle shed. Living and probably working in Norwich, should not need two cars.
