Councils promoting sites for affordable housing in Kingsbridge

South Hams District Council and Kingsbridge Town Council are inviting expressions of interest to deliver affordable-led housing in Kingsbridge.

The two councils are inviting expressions of interest (EOIs), including offers and proposals for purchase or partnerships on two sites at Ropewalk, for the delivery of good quality affordable led housing. The first location is a brownfield site, previously used as a day centre for those with additional needs by Devon County Council. The second location is a greenfield site accessed from Ropewalk.

Interested parties are invited to submit informal proposals for the site by 29 January 2023.

The sites currently do not have planning permission for housing. Any interested party would need to outline within their EOI how they would plan to deliver an affordable led scheme on these sites, including obtaining all necessary planning consents and related infrastructure.

Cllr Judy Pearce, South Hams Executive Member for Housing, said: “Housing has been a priority for the Council for many years, but our declaration of a housing crisis last September has made this topic even more important for us.

“We hope to hear from as many interested parties as possible to bring forward housing schemes on these sites. Affordability is a key component of any suggestion and any houses built on these sites should also have an emphasis on quality too.

"Applicants should make clear their requirements as part of their proposal.

"After submitting the application, parties may be invited to discuss their proposals in more detail.

"All proposals should be in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework and the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan."

Martina Edmonds, Kingsbridge Town Councillor and representative on the focus group, said: “We at Kingsbridge Town Council have been working alongside the landowners South Hams District Council, officers and South Hams Councillors for some time on this project. We are delighted that the advertisement for expression of interest has now been launched.”

Yeah right...
Affordable housing isn't a thing down here. Applegate was meant to include affordable houses for first-time buyers, but the starting price was £300,000.
These will just be bought by greedy landlords and holidaymakers who will rent them out.
