Persimmon Homes has secured planning permission for a major new development which will deliver homes, jobs and a new primary school to Bradwell.
The company’s application for 850 homes at Bluebell Meadow on Beccles Road was approved unanimously by Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s planning committee, subject to ratification by the Secretary of State.
Andrew Fuller, managing director of Persimmon Homes Anglia, welcomed the decision, saying: “We are delighted to be on the threshold of an exciting development for Bradwell.
“The scheme will provide hundreds of much-needed new homes and includes a neighbourhood centre and land for commercial use, encouraging business and jobs into the area.
“We presented a detailed planning application for 150 homes, with a further 700 in outline form. These will offer a choice of properties, including starter homes and bungalows, and with ten per cent of the properties designated as affordable housing to meet the needs of local people.
“Along with a new primary school, we will be providing a significant amount of open space, over and above what is actually required, to benefit this development and the surrounding community.
“A much-needed link road between the A143 and Beacon Park will also be delivered, in conjunction with central government funding.
“Altogether, the planning approval represents an amazing opportunity for the Great Yarmouth area and we look forward to getting started on site in July of this year.”
