The homes, in Acacia Avenue, Wisbech, are being built by building contractors Mansell, a Balfour Beatty brand.

Chairman Brenda Reynolds marked the start of building work on Tuesday by turning the first mound of soil with managing director Jenny Hodson and Dean Burgess, managing director of Balfour Beatty’s East Anglia business.

Mrs Hodson said: “When Roddons formed in 2007, we promised to invest in new homes. The new homes on Acacia Avenue are part of our commitment to building new and affordable homes in Fenland.”

The site was previously a hot spot for anti social behaviour and fly-tipping.
