A brief update on plans for Parracombe’s local needs affordable homes.

The community trust’s planning application for six social rent affordable homes on Parracombe’s northern edge have been approved by Exmoor National Park Planning Committee. This is an important step forward but there’s still much to do before work can begin. For one thing, we need to draw up a legally enforceable Local Lettings Policy, which is a condition of planning permission and something we’ve committed to from the start. We also need to work with our housing association partner Hastoe, who will commission the building work, to ensure the project is financially viable. We’ll provide further updates as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have a local connection to Parracombe and adjoining parishes, this is a great time to register with the Devon Home Choice website here –Devon home page | Devon home choice – so that you can apply to live in one of the homes once they’re ready.
