19 new homes to boost Great Yarmouth’s housing market

In March, representatives from Norfolk County Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and R G Carter attended the opening of a housing scheme, Royal Britannia Crescent in Great Yarmouth.

The 19 three-bedroom houses, three of which are affordable housing, are hoped to boost the local housing market. The houses are located on the site of the former Beach Coach Station car park, which has been named Royal Britannia Crescent in honour of the royal visit to the town as part of the 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Bricks were donated to the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust which is working with and training young and hard to reach groups to repair historic monuments. The Trust is currently carrying out work in cemeteries across Great Yarmouth, one of which is located opposite Royal Britannia Crescent where the bricks will be used to rebuild deteriorated box tombs.

The show home is due for completion in May, with the remainder of the houses to follow shortly, one of which has already been sold.
