About us

Handford Homes develops new housing for Ipswich Borough Council. Our first sixty homes off Old Norwich Road, Ipswich were completed in March 2021. Since then, we’ve completed another forty across six sites across the Ipswich area. We’re in the initial stages of building another two hundred and forty-six new homes at Ravenswood and Bibb Way; and planning permission has been granted for a scheme at Fore Hamlet, due for completion in 2024. We have also submitted a planning application for a new scheme at Hawke Road, the former Diesco site, providing twenty-six new council homes and incorporating the current recreation and play area.

Most of our new homes become part of Ipswich Borough Council’s housing portfolio and are let at affordable rent by the Council but some get let at market rent by Handford Lettings (our subsidiary). At the forthcoming Ravenswood development, we’ll also be building some starter homes for sale.

Handford Homes is owned by Ipswich Borough Council.
