Planning permission for 5,000 homes at Thetford

Breckland Council has granted planning permission for a major extension to Thetford which will include 5000 homes, 50 acres of commercial development, three schools, community facilities and extensive landscaped open space. Pigeon was appointed in 2009 by The Crown and Kilverstone Estates to promote the scheme, and a planning application was submitted in July 2011. The first phase of housing land was offered for sale in the Autumn, and negotiations for its sale are now under way. Construction is expected to begin in 2017, with the first new homes being available the following year.
