South Norfolk District Council have advised that a local needs affordable home (a 1 bedroom house) will soon be available for re-letting. The house is suitable for a single person or a couple, perhaps seeking their first home.
The property will be advertised, by Saffron, on the South Norfolk Home Options System from Thursday, 16th November until the following Wednesday, 22nd November.
This home has been built first and foremost for people who are in need of affordable housing who have a local connection to Surlingham. That ‘local connection’ includes currently living in the village; and/or working there; and/or having previously lived there and now wishing to return.
The property is then next prioritised for households from the neighbouring parishes of Bramerton, Claxton, Rockland St Mary and Kirby Bedon.
Anyone already on or waiting to join the South Norfolk Housing Register will need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the South Norfolk ‘HomeOptions’ website or telephone for free on: 0808 168 2222 to make an application.
