163 High-Quality Homes
Castle Keep offers a wonderful combination of peaceful, rural living, yet is within easy reach of a range of day-to-day amenities in Framlingham.
The development enjoys a countryside edge-of-town setting, and the site’s mature trees – which are to be retained – will be complemented by new planting and a significant area of landscaped open space for residents to enjoy. There will also be three children’s play areas on site for families to make the most of outdoor living.
Castle Keep, which was granted planning permission in 2016, will consist of 163 high-quality new homes, including 53 properties allocated as affordable housing for local people in housing need.
Vehicle access will be established from Fairfield Road, while there will also be pedestrian-only access points along Fairfield Road. Existing footpaths around the edges of the site will be enhanced and integrated with the new internal pedestrian links. The development will also benefit from a Sustainable Urban Drainage System to manage surface water.
We have begun initial works on site in preparation for construction, to commence in December 2017. The first homes at Castle Keep are expected to be launched for sale in March 2018, while the development is anticipated to be completed in 2021.
Historic Framlingham dates back to Anglo-Saxon times and at the heart of its legacy is Framlingham Castle. Built between 1190 and 1210, the castle enjoys a long and colourful past and is now a top visitor attraction. Today, the town offers a wide range of amenities for day-to-day living.
