Affordable housing – come and see the detailed plans 

Street view - affordable housing

Not only see them – we hope you’ll ask questions, give your views and discuss any concerns.  Above all, we need your support to help make these plans for six affordable homes for local people a reality. 

It would be great to see as many people as possible from Parracombe and surrounding parishes at our third and final Public Consultation ahead of submitting a formal planning application. 

The Consultation will take place at the Village Hall on Wednesday September 14th.

You can turn up any time between 3pm and 7pm when you’ll be able to:

  • Look at the proposed design and layout of the homes off Parracombe Lane. 
  • View a model and ask detailed questions of our architect. 
  • Find out more about our Local Lettings Policy. This is designed to ensure local people from Parracombe and surrounding parishes, who can demonstrate housing need, are priority applicants. 
  • Find out how to register with Devon Home Choice, which will administer all applications. 
  • Understand how our partner, South Devon Rural Housing Association, will manage the homes. All will be let at affordable social rents allowing people priced out of the private housing market to maintain a local connection 

If we are to tackle the worsening housing crisis in our rural part of Exmoor and North Devon we need your voice to strengthen our case. So, please, do try to come along and register your views.  Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.
