The new housing estate, called Station Fields, will have 50 traditional-styled homes for open market sale by Lovell and six that affordable housing provider Havebury Housing Partnership will offer for rent.
The overall development is scheduled for completion at the end of 2018.
“We’re excited to be starting work in the New Year on this attractive development which will bring new, high-quality homes to Mendlesham,” said Lovell regional director Simon Medler. “Station Fields will offer a choice of beautifully designed, modern homes with properties suitable for families, couples and single people. New housing is a vital element in enabling rural communities to continue to flourish and we’re delighted that this development will bring homes for sale and affordable homes to Mendlesham.”
