A local needs affordable home (a one bedroom flat) will soon be available for re-letting by Saffron Housing Trust.
The property will be advertised, by Saffron, on the HomeOptions System from Thursday, 11th August until the following Wednesday, 17th August.
This home has been built first and foremost for people who are in need of affordable housing who have a local connection to Wortwell. 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 Alburgh, Redenhall with Harleston, and Shelton & Hardwiick.
Anyone already on the South Norfolk Housing Register will need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the ‘HomeOptions’, website:https://www.southnorfolkandbroadlandhomeoptions.org.uk/
Other interested residents who are not on the Housing Register should contact the Housing Advice Service here at South Norfolk Council to join the Housing Register (‘HomeOptions’) immediately. They will need to provide proof of their residency or working qualification criteria as well as other verification details. During the week that the properties are advertised on the HomeOptions system people will need to actively apply ‘(bid’) for them, and the Council’s Housing Officers will be able to provide details of how to do this. For further information people should telephone for free on: 0808 168 2222.
