Eight new affordable homes are being built in Bildeston after a long-running campaign.

The homes are being constructed in Brooks View on a site that was left unused for many years.

Funding for the development was secured with a £670,000 grant from the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency, together with funding from Suffolk Housing and support from Babergh District Council.

Councillor Sue Wigglesworth, chairman of Babergh’s housing panel, said: “This scheme is very much the result of partnership working, and required a great deal of effort on all parts to bring it forward.”
