Mid Devon District Council approved a reserved matters planning application for 60 homes across a 10.53-acre parcel of land off Higher Town, west of Sampford Peverell.
Along with new homes, the scheme will provide a central village square and green; children’s play area, community gardens, orchard and allotments, as well as green open spaces.
Edenstone Group planning director Tim Smale said: “Receiving reserved matters approval for our first site in Devon is a milestone for the business and a credit to everyone involved. It’s set to be a fantastic development, providing much-needed new homes and green open spaces for residents to enjoy, while spearheading our expansion across the South West.
“Now that planning is in place, we’re making preparatory arrangements to enable us to start work on site later this year. We’ve also started receiving enquiries from potential purchasers keen to know more about the homes when they will be released for sale.”
Edenstone, with its Southern office in Portishead and Group headquarters in Magor, is targeting achieving £100 million turnover by 2023. The South West will be key to the growth of the business and along with the Sampford Peverell site, the business has plans for new homes in Bleadon and in East Brent.
