Work gets underway on Devon housing development

Work gets underway on Devon housing developmentPartners have welcomed progress being made on work to build new homes in Devon and pave the way for jobs in the building industry.

Local property developer, Devonshire Homes, has welcomed representatives from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) on site at the residential development at Sector Lane, Axminister.

Construction work is now well underway on the building of more than 40 new homes and construction of new facilities for the town’s football club.

The HCA has supported this initiative with a £1.5 million investment from its Get Britain Building programme, which is supporting house builders by providing access to development finance, unlocking new homes across the country and creating thousands of jobs.

Steve Russell, Interim Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, said: “The HCA provided invaluable support in our bid to secure substantial funding from the Get Britain Building programme and today they have been able to see the development progressing as a result of their commitment.”

The funding is supporting the first phase of 43 new homes at Sector Lane, eight of which will be affordable, while also unlocking the development of new club facilities for Axminster Town Football Club at the new site adjacent to the Cloakham Lawns Sports Club.

HCA Area Manager Steve Jackson said: “This is an important project for us, as it supports the delivery of new homes which are needed in this area as well as unlocking the development of new facilities which the football club has been working hard to bring to the town.”
