Grundisburgh Village Affordable Housing Architecture Portfolio


Essential Housing creates a New Village Entrance

Exception sites are sites next to a village 'envelope' which the Local Plan proposes could be used for affordable housing if a Local Needs Survey demonstrates a local need.

This exception site forms a new entrance to the north of the village of Grundisburgh in Suffolk and was built in 3 phases for English Villages Housing Association (now RHT Developments). The 24 houses and flats reflect the Suffolk vernacular and are for both rental and shared ownership.
