Shared Equity Housing Opportunity

Victory Housing Trust has been disposing of properties in coastal villages like Cley whenever they become vacant, spending the proceeds of new builds in places like North Walsham. The Parish Council has vehemently opposed this policy and subsequent to a meeting with the Chief Executive of Victory, John Archibald, it was agreed that the next property to become vacant would be offered to local people on a shared equity basis under which the prospective buyer takes a mortgage on the agreed share (minimum 50%, maximum probably 80% though this has not been declared by Victory) and pays rent on the rest of the property. If they subsequently decide to move they sell that  equity stake to the new buyer while Victory retain the rest.

The property in question is in the Glandford Road and will be marketed by Arnold Keys in Holt from about mid-April. At first it will be offered to residents of Cley only – if none come forward the net will be widened to the surrounding parishes and then the whole of North Norfolk – very much like the Local Lettings Policy. At the time of writing we do not know the asking price of the property.

A note of caution; It usually rains on a working party day!

Also a reminder that on the 13th May we have a fleet of Cockle sailing dinghies coming to Cley harbour on the morning tide, arrival about 9am. There may even be tea and coffee for you if you wish to welcome the fleet to Cley.

Proposed new social housing for Cley!


Architect’s sketch of the proposed new housing on the disused part of the allotment gardens, Cley.

The designs for new social housing that Victory Housing Trust are proposing to build on the unused part of the allotment gardens were displayed at the church on Tuesday afternoon, 4 October, with representatives of Victory and of the District and Parish councils in attendance. Prior to this comment forms had been delivered to every house in Cley. The Council wish to remind residents that they have until the 26 October to get their replies to the Clerk, Louise Stevens. We would urge as many as possible to do this.

Cley Quay restoration

Please note that the Quay Car Park and access road will be closed for dredging of the harbour from 31st January to 6th February inclusive. There will be a certain amount of machinery and plant coming and going during this week which might cause some inconvenience. Please bear with us in this, as we will be doing our utmost to keep disruption to a minimum. The footpath from the George garden through to the quay will be accessible for viewing the dredging but not for access to the quay car park or mill, please use the alternative footpath beside the Old Customs house.
If you have any queries or otherwise please contact me on 01263 740987 or e mail kayeread7603@btinternet.com
