Affordable housing is completed in Felthorpe by Saffron Housing Trust
Five new affordable homes have been completed in Felthorpe, near Horsford, by Saffron Housing Trust.
A recent event saw a high level of interest in applying for the houses - one two-bedroomed house, two two-bedroomed bungalows and two three-bedroomed houses - through Broadland District Council.
Saffron Housing Trust, based in Long Stratton, has built the properties in partnership with Broadland District Council and the Geoffrey Watling Charity.
They have been built on suitable land on The Street identified and made available by the Geoffrey Watling Charity and are aimed at helping ease the affordable rural housing shortage in the area.
John Whitelock, director of new business at Saffron Housing, said: 'Saffron is well aware of the problems that local families face in finding suitable affordable homes and this is particularly true in rural communities.
