The housebuilder has exchanged contracts for the acquisition of land in Ilfracombe to create a collection of desirable new build homes in a stunning setting. Planning permission for the land has previously been granted and the construction of the private and affordable homes, is due to start in early 2023.

This development in Ilfracombe is the multi award-winning housebuilder’s third site in North Devon.

Devonshire Homes will contribute to the local community under the S106 agreement in the following ways: providing sports pitches, a MUGA (multi-use games area), LEAP (local equipment area for play), LAPS (local area for play) and open space. Land will also be provided for a school and community facility to be built. The overall Section 106 financial contributions to be made for the scheme will total over £2,000,000 after indexation for the following:

  1. Local cemetery
  2. Community building on site
  3. Education
  4. Healthcare
