Abbey Estate Revamp

The Abbey Estate was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of a major expansion of Thetford. The former Council Houses were tansfered to a private housing association in the 1990s. Tennants also benefitted from the 'Right to Buy'. Currently around half of the properties on the estate are owned by Flagship Homes, with most of the rest in private hands. Most of the public green space around the houses is still owned by Breckland District Council

In 2019, Flagship Housing announced plans for a major revamp of the estate, in partnership with Breckland Council and Norfolk County Council. On 4th Novmeber 2019, Breckland Council signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Flagship Group Ltd to work together to create meaningful change and improvements to the Estate.
