A 12-dwelling affordable housing development has just been finished in north Norfolk, with the first residents already picking up their keys.
Paul Dawson, a retired electrical engineer, became the first new tenant of the Broadland Housing Association estate off the B1149 Holt Road at Edgefield, south of Holt.
Mr Dawson, 57, said he was thrilled to have moved into his new one-bedroom bungalow after previously living in a damp, privately-rented house in Briston, which was aggravating a number of health issues he has.
He said: “This is a fabulous home. It’s the exact opposite of where I was living – modern, well-designed, and stylish.”
Nine of the affordable homes are for rent while the other three are for shared ownership.
