Granite stone marks completion of partnership development

The Horizon development at Greenway Lane is a joint venture partnership between Clinton Devon Estates and Cavanna Homes which has provided 48 new homes, designed in the Arts and Crafts style of architecture, with 19 of the properties designated as affordable housing.   

Head of Property and Land for Clinton Devon Estates, Leigh Rix said: “Our vision was to provide a good mix of well-designed new homes and more allotment space to meet the specific needs of this community. With clever master planning by LHC Architecture and working closely with our construction partner Cavanna Homes and Cornerstone housing association we have been able to deliver 40 percent affordable housing as well as increasing the allotments from 56 to 87.”

East Devon District Councillor and Budleigh Salterton Town Councillor Tom Wright said: “This development has not only provided much needed housing in the area, but the new and improved allotments have helped to form a real sense of community amongst the gardeners, with the allotments now acting as a hub of social activity.”

Fred Sureshkumar, Head of Construction for Cavanna Homes said: “It is fantastic to see this development complete and we are pleased to say that there is now only one home that has not yet been sold.”

Rick Williams, Chief Executive of Cornerstone housing association, which manages the affordable housing at Horizon said: “Rural communities such as Budleigh Salterton are finding it increasingly difficult to provide homes for younger people which results in them having to move away, often to a city, to find their first home. Projects like this which deliver a good mix of affordable rent and shared ownership are really important to ensure that communities like this are able to thrive.”
