Strategy for Bungay

New homes in Bungay


Homes Built 2014-2017


Existing Housing Commitments[1]


Homes allocated in Local Plan expected to be delivered in plan period


Total Growth 2014-2036



5.1 The strategy for Bungay allows for a modest level of growth which protects the sensitive landscape around the town which is well related to the Broads. New employment land has already been permitted to the south of the town as part of mixed use development which will help improve the self-containment of the town.

5.2 The Local Plan allocates land for 305 new homes in addition to the 222 which already have permission or completed since the beginning of the plan period. New housing will help contribute funding towards the delivery of a new fit for purpose community centre for the town as well as support the shops and services of the town centre. 

1. Sites with planning permission or on Local Development Framework allocations which are expected to complete before 2036. [back]
