New affordable homes coming to Palmerston Park and Birchen Lane Tiverton

Posted on: 3 December 2015

Work is due to start to prepare the site for 26 affordable homes at Palmerston Park and 4 affordable homes at Birchen Lane, in Tiverton. The two developments will be built by Pemberton Homes and will deliver the following housing mix.

Palmerston Park                             Birchen Lane

4 x 1 bed flats                                           4 x 1 bed flats
2 x 1 bed houses
10 x 2 bed houses
8 x 3 bed houses
2 x 4 bed houses

The Council successfully bid for £1,170,000 of funding from the HCA Affordable Homes 2015-18 programme to help with the cost of building the Palmerston Park development and a further £80,000 funding towards the Birchen Lane development.

All the homes will be for affordable rent which is 80% of market rent value and will be owned, managed and allocated by Mid Devon District Council. If you are interested in renting one of these properties you will need to be registered on the Devon Home Choice housing register, details at www.devonhomechoice.com. The properties are due to be completed by late spring 2017.

An official start on site ceremony will be held later this month.
