Saffron Housing Trust news


Saffron Housing have celebrated with local residents who have moved into 15 new Dickleburgh affordable homes, developed by the housing association. The development was designed and built with local housing need in mind, with all 15 residents coming from the local area. Local contractors were used on the development, adding a valuable boost to the local economy.

Broadland District Council has a biennial Design Award, which recognises those new developments that are considered to be of high design value. The criteria for the awards are for schemes to have made a positive contribution to their locality and have made an exceptional effort to raise design standards in the Broadland area.

Why we joined PlaceShapers

We joined PlaceShapers originally as the ethos behind the organisation fitted well with our beliefs about local community involvement and development. Since then PlaceShapers has grown into a much larger and influential version of that original intention that is really listened to and valued in the sector. The key to the on-going success is the ‘self-help’ nature of the organisation that encourages learning and visits between members that helps each member locally to support the communities they work in.
