MORE than 100 additional new homes are to be built at an existing site in Bovey Tracey as developer Devonshire Homes enters Phase Two at its site.

Devonshire Homes have exchanged on land in Bovey Tracey to commence Phase Two at their Longston Cross development.  This latest scheme will bring a further 119 new dwellings to this development, including 40 affordable homes.

The homes will be a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom properties, designed in the new premium and energy-efficient Legacy Collection house styles. 

Managing Director of Devonshire Homes, Angus Cook, said: ‘We are delighted to be bringing more high-quality homes to Bovey Tracey.

‘Phase Two will provide continuity for Devonshire Homes, building upon the success of Phase One, where all properties are now reserved.

‘We look forward to hitting the ground running with Phase Two and sharing more news on how this development progresses in the coming months’.

In addition to providing new homes, Devonshire Homes will contribute £2.1 million in Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payments, supporting the local community's growth.

At present, the Longston Cross development is a collection of 156 homes, ranging from two to five bedrooms. 

‘The term "affordable" makes me mad.

‘No housing on new developments are "affordable" when you look at the average south west salary’ one resident said.

‘Oh great can’t wait for more houses. Let’s just make Bovey a suburb of Exeter. When is it too many?’ said another.
