Estover is the latest area of Plymouth to benefit from a range of affordable housing.
The new development of Cann Meadow is on the site of the former Estover Primary School, which was released to the market by Plymouth City Council in 2015, as part of an on-going strategy to provide new, good quality and energy efficient homes for Plymouth.
The site was purchased by national housebuilding company, Taylor Wimpy who have built 68 brand new homes of which 20 have been provided as affordable housing.
They include 12 affordable rented flats and eight good sized, two and three bedrooms homes for shared ownership, all of which will be managed by Clarion Housing Group
Councillor Patrick Nicholson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for Strategic Transport, Housing and Planning, said: “I’m delighted to see yet another disused and derelict site become homes for families who need them.
“The homes are finished to a very high standard between a school and a supermarket, and with easy access to the city centre.
“I’m also very envious of some of the fantastic views to the moors!”
Nicola Evans, Development Manager for Clarion Housing said: “Working closely with Taylor Wimpey and Plymouth City Council, we are pleased to deliver homes for both affordable rent and shared ownership at Estover in Plymouth.
“A number of our residents have already moved in to the development and have told us that they are very happy in their new homes.”
