Ground has been broken on a new £3 million specialist supported housing development designed for adults with learning and physical disabilities.

The 17 supported living bungalows, together with separate complex care and autism accommodation for seven tenants, is being built in Hardingham Road, Hingham.

Barry Duffin, a South Norfolk councillor was at the ground-breaking ceremony.

He said: 'It's important to me to make sure that the most vulnerable in our society are cared for in Hingham and further afield. This is a really good example of what can be done using the specialist supported living model which is a fantastic approach to dealing with the shortage of quality accommodation for vulnerable adults, improving lives whilst making better use of the adult social care budget.'

The development is a partnership between HB Villages, Inclusion Housing CIC and Lifeways Community Care.
