The 44No.Dwellings consist of 36No.Private dwellings and 8No.Affordable homes. Construction of all dwellings comprised of traditional brick and block cavity walls with an array of brick, flint and render finish, trenched foundations with composite insulated concrete floor slab, trussed roofs with concrete pan tile and slate tile finish, Hardwood timber sash & casement windows and doors, GRP composite front doors, and gas central heating and water services.

With every home there is a range of luxury finishes, with a variety of options to choose from in the early stages of construction, including the kitchen, flooring and tiling finishes. The dwellings will benefit from certain modern touches such as PIR lighting to the hall and entrance, and spotlights throughout the ground floor and bathrooms.As part of the development there is a stunning landscaped area of open green space, with small bridges over the Mundesley Beck River and a pathway leading directly to Water Lane for easy access to amenities.

With the surrounding properties there is anawareness of local neighbours and regular liaison with them wasrequired. This was carried out through letter drops, face to face meetings on a consistent basis, and adhering to working within strict daily start and finish times to mitigate noise pollution and traffic within the vicinity. With the single existing access route into site, particular consideration was to be given to avoiding conflict between pedestrian and vehicular routes to ensure safe pedestrian access for the duration of the works.With the site having restricted access it was imperative to programme the sequence of works to co-ordinate all trades and elements of work efficiently. Adequate site traffic management plans were implemented to aid with all movements on site and to prevent any accidents.

To achieve the above, after the initial site clearance works and site compound area was installed, the first objective was to create the main adoptable access road into the site from the High Street. This then provided a clean and level road onto site for all traffic, but in particular large plants and delivery vehicles, to gain access to the construction works for Phase 1 plots.

As of the end of August 2017, we have installed all 13No.Plots and Garages in Phase 1 up to roof level, as well as the roads and drainage for this phase.Overall the Client has been extremely satisfied with the works to date, and agood working relationship has been established with Dewing Properties, which we would hope to replicate on future schemes.

I hope you could tell how excited I was to find a developer who is providing such a high standard of property and external curb appeal in Norfolk. It was as close to perfect as I’ve seen in 10 years (and in my standards that’s hard to hit).
