This initial phase is part of the redevelopment of the brown-field site at the former Mid Suffolk District Council HQ to design and build a mixed-use scheme of 32 new homes and a retail unit. The mixed-tenure dwellings consist of semi-detached houses and two apartment blocks, one of which includes a food and convenience store on the ground floor.
Lavinia Hadingham, Mid Suffolk District Council’s cabinet member for housing, said: “It’s important that everyone in the district should have access to affordable housing and somewhere that they can call home. This development meets a range of needs – in adding to our council housing stock and offering a provision for those wishing to own property. Either way, these properties will be people’s homes, and help to sustain one of our essential market towns.” Richard Gawthorpe, Director MSDC Growth Ltd, said: “On behalf of the directors of Mid Suffolk Growth, we are delighted to be handing over these beautiful new homes to our client Mid Suffolk District Council. These eight new homes represent the first release of 32 homes on Phase 1 at Chambers Green, in Needham Market. We want to thank our design team Hamson Barron Smith and main contractor Cocksedge Building Contractors for designing and delivering these exquisite new homes at Chambers Green”
