Carrowbreck Meadow was delivered by Broadland Growth, a partnership between Broadland District Council and NPS Group to offer carefully planned, affordable, high quality developments in Broadland while maintaining the highest public sector values.

The 14 homes have won a host of awards, including the RIBA East Award 2017.

Filming of the houses will be aired on Channel 4 on Tuesday, November 21 at 9pm.

The programme will focus on the development's architecture and energy efficient qualities.

Councillor Andrew Proctor, Leader of Broadland District Council and Chairman of Broadland Growth Ltd. said: 'Carrowbreck Meadow is an exciting development which raises the bar for local authorities in the delivery of housing.

'We are making a difference to our communities, while offering something different to the marketplace and meeting the demand for housing in Broadland. This also creates significant social value for our district.'
