Cllr Adrian Lawrence, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "We have received some government funding to provide a community-led housing development. The Sheep Field, near Tesco in Hunstanton, has been identified and will feature approximately 30 homes. These will predominantly be affordable, helping to meet the needs of local people who are finding it increasingly difficult to get on the housing ladder. Preference for these low-cost homes will be given to local people."
"This innovative scheme also means the people who could potentially be living on this site, can get involved in the internal design of the properties as well as forming a community to design some of the external areas and to come up with arrangements for the future management of the site. It is a very different approach and we are very much looking forward to working with the local community on this project."
