Proposed Affordable Rural Housing in
Newington & Peene Parish
The proposed Newington Road site
What Is Proposed?
We are proposing to design, build and manage a small development in Newington Road of three affordable rented homes for local people. The scheme would comprise the following homes:
2x two bedroom flats
1x two bedroom house
In addition, we are proposing 1x 'Custom Build Plot' for cross subsidy of the affordable homes. Please refer to the FAQ section to learn more about Cross Subsidy and what a Custom Build Plot is.

Please refer to our FAQs to learn how this site was selected.
The proposed site is located opposite Underhill Cottages and to the South East of Fairview House in Peene. Access to the proposed homes would be directly from Newington Road. The development site is approximately 0.5 acres in size and comprises a relatively flat grassed field. The existing public right of way to the South East of the site connects Hill Lane with Newington.
