Work has started on building 63 affordable homes at the Marham Park site in Bury St Edmunds.

The Orbit Homes scheme, called Wellington Place, will be a mixture of shared ownership and social rent properties.

This is in addition to the 28 affordable homes currently under construction by Orbit in nearby Elmswell.

Ray Winney, construction director for Orbit Homes in the east region, said: “Our priority is to build thriving communities which also meet the housing needs of the local area.”

The properties are expected to be occupied from early 2022, with the project completed in summer 2023.
