Advance notice that the housing development off Tattlepot Road includes two affordable homes. Both are one bedroom houses for rent.
Saffron Housing Trust expects to acquire these homes. The precise date of completion is uncertain because of Covid-19 implications for the construction industry. However, completion is currently scheduled for Autumn 2020 (possibly October).
These homes would be suitable for a single person or couple, perhaps a local person in unsuitable accommodation or seeking their first home. They will be advertised, by Saffron, on the South Norfolk HomeOptions System, possibly before the actual handover from the developer.
In accordance with usual practice, there will be priority for people who have a local connection to Pulham Market. That ‘local connection’ includes currently living in the village; and/or working there; and/or having previously lived there and now wishing to return.
The property is then next prioritised for households from the neighbouring parishes of Pulham St Mary, Shelton, Tivetshall and Dickleburgh.
Anyone already on the South Norfolk Housing Register will need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the South Norfolk ‘HomeOptions’ website:
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.
