Our developments

At the East of England Co-op, we strive to develop improved environments, much needed homes and employment opportunities for local communities. 

We're proud to work with local companies, including architects, planners, project managers and contractors to help deliver our developments, helping to secure jobs and plough money back into the local economy. 

Whether a residential or commercial scheme, we follow a core set of values including: 

  • Being open and transparent
  • Being fair and honest
  • Showing integrity
  • To listen, care and be supportive
  • To create homes not houses - our residential properties are architect designed, making them attractive and homely. 

New Street, Woodbridge

Five new family homes at the heart of Woodbridge, Suffolk are now complete.

Constructed by Great Blakenham based contractors Elliston, Steady and Hawes, the four three-bed homes and one four-bed home, have transformed the New Street site owned by the East of England Co-op.

Nick Denny, Joint Chief Executive for the East of England Co-op, said: “We’re incredibly pleased with this latest development. The past few months have been unprecedented, with the all industries impacted and needing to find new ways of working whilst keeping employees safe.

“We’ve worked with Elliston, Steady and Hawes on a number of local developments, who, despite the various restrictions and guidelines, have completed these new homes to an incredibly high-standing.

“This development will make a valuable addition to our investment property portfolio, whilst providing high quality family homes to rent.”
