The new affordable homes being built by Clarion Housing are expected to be ready for handover in Early 2021. This site will deliver x 10 new build affordables including 1 bedroom bungalows and houses, and 2 and 3 bedroom houses (all for Social Rent).
Anyone in housing need within the Swannington Parish should contact the Council’s Housing Options Team to express an interest in these new build affordable homes. Anyone with a local connection to Swannington (including Alderford and Little Witchingham) should contact the Housing Options Team to register your interest in these new build properties:-
When you contact the Council you will need to ensure your local connection is registered on your application - this is applicable for new applicants or those already registered on the Housing List. At the same time it is usually helpful if you check that we still have your correct information on your application. This should include your current contact number (mobile is usually best) and you should also register any change of circumstances - such as increase in family size. For most applicants it is probably sensible if you email your interest (with name and contact number) - in the first instance.
The new Swannington play area is now open.
Broadland District Council is launching a new weekly online lottery called the Community at Heart Lottery. This gives local causes a new and fun way to raise much needed funds, as people buying a ticket will have the choice of who they want their money to go to.
A virtual launch event takes place on Thursday 5th November at 11am to give groups who want to get involved information about how they can benefit from participating.
If you know of a club, non-profit association or charity within the Broadland area who are looking for a reliable and free way to raise funds, please let us know their details and we will contact them.
