Our professionals, in association with Sturt and co, have announced the launch of an 87.2-acre (35.289 hectare) freehold residential development opportunity in Norfolk, at South Wootton, to the north east of King’s Lynn.

This new housing development site promises to transform the supply of much-needed homes in the King’s Lynn area. The site was allocated for housing by Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, with the planning application being granted on appeal. 

The site will include affordable housing and has been designed to create much needed local facilities with open spaces, play areas, sports pitches, car park and shops. The scheme will also see money spent on key improvements to bus, walking and cycling routes in the area. King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council needs to build more than 500 new homes a year to meet national targets. 

Mathew Forster, partner at Carter Jonas, outlined, “With its excellent rail links to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross, and with the beautiful Norfolk countryside on its doorstep, King’s Lynn offers an excellent opportunity, in a post COVID-19 era, for purchasers wanting to live in the area”.

Richard Sturt of Sturt and co, outlined, “Our vision here is for a high quality, sustainable development with a good range of different housing types. It will be a real boost to the area, and we look forward to meeting house builders who want to take on this opportunity.”

An indicative masterplan accompanies the outline planning consent. All planning, legal and technical documentation, including the signed S106 agreement, is available via a microsite which can be access on request. The closing date for tenders is Thursday 4 February 2021.
