Little Melton Parish Council

Affordable Homes being built at Ringwood Close, Little Melton

The PC has received the following information from South Norfolk Council -

It is expected that these homes will be let by Saffron Housing Trust from the end of May 2017.

The six homes for rent comprise:

  • 2 one bedroom flats
  • 1 two bedroom bungalow
  • 2  two bedroom houses
  • 1 three bedroom house

 The planning consent includes a S106 Agreement which gives priority to local people in the following order:

  1. Residents of the parish of Little Melton who have lived in that parish of a total of at least 3 of the last 10 years
  2. Former residents of the parish of Little Melton who lived in that parish for at least 3 of the last 10 years
  3. Residents of the parish of Little Melton who have lived in that parish or the adjacent parishes of Bawburgh, Great Melton and Colney  for the last 3 years or more
  4. People working in the parish of Little Melton and who have done so for the last year or more for at least 10 hours each week
  5. Residents of the adjacent parishes of Bawburgh, Great Melton and Colney who have lived in one or more of those parishes (or the parish of Little Melton) for the last 3 years or more
  6. Residents of the parish of Little Melton who have lived in that parish for less than 3 years
  7. Residents of the adjacent parishes of Bawburgh, Great Melton and Colney who have lived in those parishes (or the parish of Little Melton) for less than 3 years
  8. Residents of South Norfolk
  9. Any other person

These homes will be suitable for local people in a wide range of circumstances, including single people and couples seeking their first home.

We expect that shortly before completion the properties will be made available through an advert on the South Norfolk HomeOptions system.  Anyone already on the South Norfolk Housing Register will need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the South Norfolk 'HomeOptions' website:

www.snhomeoptions.org.uk

Other interested residents who are not on the Housing Register should contact the Housing Advice Service here at South Norfolk Council to join the Housing Register ('HomeOptions').  They will need to provide proof of their residency or working qualification criteria as well as other verification details.  During the week that the properties are advertised on the HomeOptions system people will need to actively apply ‘(bid’) for them, and the Council’s Housing Officers will be able to provide details of how to do this.  For further information people should telephone for free on: 0808 168 2222.
