The council houses are located at Clerk’s Piece in Beccles and Garden Close in Bungay.

And have been completed in partnership between Waveney District Council, Orwell Housing Association and Wellington Construction Ltd.

The development at Garden Close follows the completion of other council homes at Ecclestone close, Princes Road and Manor Road in Bungay last year.

Cllr Chris Punt, Waveney’s Cabinet Member for Housing said: “We are committed to building and delivering new and affordable homes to meet increasing demand and have already completed twenty quality affordable homes over the past two years.
