Lovell Homes specialises in partnership housing - building affordable properties - and has a number of projects underway in Suffolk and Norfolk. 

It has been selected by Suffolk County Council as their joint venture partner to deliver around 2,800 homes across Lowestoft, Mildenhall, Bramford, West Row and Newmarket.

The company has also building a 60 home development at Stradbroke in Suffolk, with the first homes expected in spring 2023. 

In Norfolk, Lovell is working with Saffron Housing Trust on a new 90 home site on former Wymondham Rugby Club land, which will consist of 29 shared ownership and 61 affordable rent properties. 

Their profits come despite the challenges facing the industry at the moment, with fewer houses generally being built.
