A group of new affordable homes will soon be occupied after the keys were handed over to Victory Housing Trust by a building contractor.
The housing estate is made up of 10 one and two bed flats for affordable rent, and three two and three bedroom houses for low-cost shared ownership.
It has been built on a brownfield site on Baron’s Close near the town centre. The land was previously an NHS office, which had been empty and derelict for a number of years.
The development represents a £1.7m investment by Victory Housing, along with a £382,000 contribution from the Homes & Communities Agency, now known as Homes England.
Victory Housing chief executive, John Archibald, said: “We are delighted with the transformation of this site from a piece of unloved and derelict land into 13 attractive and much-needed affordable homes for Fakenham.”
