Rural homes on the way
Work is progressing on schemes which will see much-needed new homes coming to rural areas of Devon and Cornwall.
Homes for the South West member Plymouth Community Homes (PCH) is on track to deliver six new affordable homes at the Parsonage Lea development in Newton Ferrers, Devon by June this year. The homes – three for affordable rent and three for shared ownership sale – will be available for the over 55s and are part of a larger development of a total of 12 properties built by Pearce Fine Homes.
PCH’s allocation will be available as part of a Section 106 agreement, which means they will be let to people on the housing register with a local connection to Newton Ferrers and surrounding areas.
Building work will also start in the next couple of months on nine homes at Pensilva, a village just north of Liskeard, Cornwall.
Andrew Borlase Builders are building a total of 18 homes, with nine of them available to PCH through a similar section 106 agreement which sees local people get priority.
PCH will have six properties for affordable rent and three for shared ownership sale with the remaining nine available for open market sale.
Work is due to start in the next couple of months and be finished by Spring 2022.
All of the shared ownership homes will be available for sale through SO Living.
