Housebuilder unveils plans for Newton Abbot site

Developer Permission Homes South West has unveiled plans for land at Langford Bridge in Devon.

This would see the development of 40 sustainable new homes for local people.

The development will be a no-gas site with zero-carbon-ready homes powered by ground-source heat pumps. Secure cycle storage, EV charging points, and high-quality materials will further enhance the sustainability of the site.

The proposed site is allocated in the local plan and would help meet Teignbridge District Council’s five-year housing land supply while addressing local housing needs, with 1,033 local people currently waiting on the authority housing list.

Persimmon Homes South Wests managing director, Dan Heathcote, said: “We are delighted to unveil our plans for our proposed new site at Langford Bridge on the outskirts of Newton Abbot, which will include a pioneering local homes guarantee.

“Persimmon is proud of our record in supporting local first-time buyers, families, and young people to buy their own homes, and our plans for this high-quality, zero-carbon-ready site in Newton Abbot are no different. As part of our proposals and commitment to the local community, we will implement a local homes guarantee which will see us ringfence the majority of homes at the site for local people to reserve for the first eight weeks of sale.

“We look forward to progressing with our planning application as we seek to deliver quality, sustainable homes and leave a positive lasting legacy for local people at the Langford Bridge site.”
