“Every home on new housing estate built in wrong place”

Suffolk Coastal District Council’s (SCDC) enforcement report shows discrepancies between where Persimmon Homes built 95 homes at its Mount Pleasant development in Framingham, compared to the permitted designs. It is claimed the issues could lead to legal problems for the homeowners.

But Persimmon claims the properties were built in the correct position.

SCDC’s planning committee will discuss the enforcement issues this month.

Other errors noted in the report include roads and driveways built in the wrong place, a missing footpath and changes to home designs, including different materials and the addition of boxes on the front of properties.

While most of the variations in the location of the homes are a metre or less, some residents fear the discrepancies could mean their title deeds are unsound.
