Green light for 150 new homes at Honiton Business Park


A reserved matters application for a residential development of 150 new homes on land at Honiton Business Park has been approved by East Devon District Council.

The site, made up of two parcels of previously developed brownfield land totalling almost four hectares was allocated for housing in the council’s Local Plan in 2016.

The Pegasus Group team based in Cirencester provided design services on behalf of Taylor Wimpey, including details of layout, scale, external appearance of the buildings and landscape.

Rebecca Pass said: “We are extremely pleased that reserved matters planning permission was granted for 150 dwellings at Mountbatten Mews, Ottery Moor Lane, Honiton.

“The masterplan and proposed layout are founded on best practice urban design principles, community integration and sustainable development, with strong links to the wider area. It aims to create a development for the 21st Century, whilst reflecting the desirable elements of the local vernacular.

“In this context, the development will respect the local character, but also move the community towards a more sustainable future, through a significant increase in housing choice and the redevelopment of a previously developed brownfield site.”

The proposed mix of the 150 new homes is for 4×1-bed flats and 14×2-bed flats; 17x 2-bed, 65×3-bed and 50×4-bed houses. Of the 150 properties, 26 will be affordable to include affordable rented and shared ownership housing.
