Our concept seeks to create high quality family housing in a safe and green environment shaped around thecharacteristics and constraints of the site.
The image shows a masterplan for our development. It is intended as a general guide to show you how the properties, open spaces and internal roads will be arranged.
The layout has been designed to make an effective use of the site while working with the constraints that are presented to us. The layout has taken account of the trees around the site boundary and has inclusively integrated them into the public areas of the scheme. This ensures that the landscape character of the scheme is a continuing theme.
Our development will comprise 65 new homes, including a mixture of 2, 3, 4 and 6 bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.
Approximately 50% of the new homes in our development will be provided as affordable housing. Affordable housing provision will comprise 32 properties which will be made available for affordable rent and shared ownership through registered local providers.
Car parking will be provided in accordance with Devon County Council’s Residential Parking and Design Guidance. In general, this will allow for two allocated spaces per home. Garages will not be included as recent surveys have shown that they are not always used for parking. Visitor parking spaces will also be provided.
Landscaping and open space
Our development will preserve all significant trees which are currently located within the site. Existing trees at the boundaries of the site will be enhanced with new planting to screen the new development from neighbouring housing and to act to increase the ecological biodiversity of the area.
