Independent West Country house builder Devonshire Homes has exchanged conditional contracts for the acquisition of approximately 36 acres of land for a new build homes development in Trannack near Penzance, Cornwall.
The West Cornwall site is located close to the A30 where c 300 architecturally-designed homes are planned for this scheme. Devonshire Homes will seek to obtain detailed planning consent for the development which will offer a mix of one and two bedroom flats and two, three, four and five bedroom homes with spectacular views.
The land at Trannack is one of the major sites allocated for housing under Cornwall Council’s Local Plan for Penzance to support strategic growth in West Cornwall. With amazing elevated views from the site across to St Michael’s Mount, Devonshire Homes will bring forward a scheme to deliver a new access road from the A30 and a range of homes which sit well within the topography of the site, maximising the stunning outlook and views.
The award-winning house builder, which currently has active sites in St. Austell, Crediton, Bovey Tracey, Kingsbridge and Bideford, will submit a reserved matters application later this year with an aim for construction to start following planning consent.
Angus Cook, Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, commented: “We are pleased to have exchanged contracts on land at Trannack for a forthcoming Devonshire Homes development. This is the first of several we have in solicitors hands, to further build the land pipeline for the business. The Trannack development will be one of our ‘anchor’ sites.
“Work will now start on submitting a detailed planning application for a range of new homes on this allocated development. We are looking forward to engaging with residents, community stakeholders and councils as we finalise our plans to deliver much-needed new homes that mean prospective buyers from varying stages of the property ladder will be able to find a suitable home here.”
The acquisition of land at Trannack is an important strategic milestone for South West based Devonshire Homes as the 30-year old residential home developer builds its land bank and drives its ambitious five-year growth plan forward.
The Devonshire Homes team has decades of experience in building new communities across the West Country with current developments including: Tarka View, Crediton; Longston Cross, Bovey Tracey; Applegate Park, Kingsbridge; Gwallon Keas, St. Austell and The Grange, Bideford.
