Plans for 100 new homes in Wroxham have today been revealed.

Hopkins Homes held its first public consultation for a development of 100 new homes off Salhouse Road, alongside the railway line and main Norwich Road in the south of the village.

The plans are for 100 new homes, 33 of which would fit affordable home criteria, and will include a children’s play area and landscaped open space.

The site was shortlisted by Broadland District Council in Autumn 2011 as one of the most suitable locations for development in Wroxham.

Hopkins Homes intends to submit its final plans in March and is targeting planning permission being granted in November so that building work can begin in May 2014 and be completed in February 2015.
