Diss development welcomes new residents

South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon helped hand over the keys to some of the first residents of an affordable housing scheme between Diss and Roydon.

Philippa Hawes and Aaron Lawther became the owners of a three-bedroom home at the new Long Meadow development following a hand over ceremony on Friday.

Mr Bacon joined C-Zero for the hand over and praised the developer for delivering affordable and sustainable homes for local people.

'Long Meadow is a very welcome addition to Diss, providing affordable housing for over 100 local families. We are proud that a development in our town is setting the standard when it comes to sustainable homes,' he said.

The development consists of 114 homes in total, with 87 available to purchase at discounted prices and 12 available to purchase on the open market. The remaining 15 have been bought by Flagship Housing Group for rent.

The first phase of the project has seen the completion of 29 homes, which have all been sold.

C-Zero director, Simon Linford added: 'We are thrilled that local people, such as Philippa and Aaron, have responded so positively to Long Meadow and are able to take ownership of truly ground-breaking homes. It has taken a great deal of work to get this far and we look forward to completing the rest of the development.'
