AN affordable housing scheme allowing people with a connection to Nayland to stay in the village has been officially opened.
The four two-bedroom homes and one three-bedroom home in Wiston Road, cost £665,000 and were built after a local housing need was identified.
On Friday, councillors from Babergh District Council – the authority behind the scheme – joined families and residents who will be renting the homes.
Sue Wigglesworth, chairman of Babergh’s housing panel, said: “Babergh is delighted with this development and all of the partners involved in the scheme are very proud.
“It is a sensitively-designed development which has blended in well with its location and provided much-needed homes for people.”
Peter Lakey, chairman of Flagship Housing Association, which also supported the development, said: “It’s lovely to see people being able to stay close to their families.
“We are delighted with the success of this development and for the opportunity to play a key role in the sustainable future of the Nayland community.”
Babergh District Council has a target to deliver 100 new affordable homes each year.
