The final stage of the Lynnsport development with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk is now underway.

The whole project for up to 1,000 homes to be built across King’s Lynn, in Lynnsport and Marsh Lane areas, and this final phase consists of the last 96 homes. These are a mixture of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, available for purchase, private rental, and affordable housing options.

In addition to new housing, the wider project also provided funding that enhanced the sports facilities at Lynnsport, with new hockey pitches, additional car parking and new tennis courts, all delivered in recent years.

Simon Medler, regional managing director at Lovell said: “We are gearing up to start further work at Lynnsport and build more quality homes in West Norfolk, continuing our partnership with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk. We are building these homes with sustainability in mind, and they will be in a popular area, so we are confident that these new homes will be well received.”

The development will be named Valentine Park, in memory of the engineer John Sutherland Valentine, who was the railway engineer on the project to extend the railway network from King’s Lynn to Hunstanton in the 1860s.

Oliver Judges, the council’s Executive Director for Place, said: “We know there is a shortage of homes in West Norfolk. This is why the council committed to the major housing project, delivering up to 1,000 new homes in the borough. Our developments around Lynnsport have already provided hundreds of new homes. Now that we have signed the contract, I am looking forward to seeing the homes start to come through on this last phase.”
