The completion of a £670,000 development in Bildeston has seen residents celebrating the new year in new homes.

Eight affordable homes have been built in Brooksfield thanks to funding from Suffolk Housing and the Homes and Communities Agency.

The land was previously occupied by a pair of semi-detached houses owned by Babergh District Council.

“We are delighted that these new homes are now being brought to life by new tenants who will all be able to live in the village in an affordable manner,” said Sue Wigglesworth, chairman of the council’s housing panel.
