Torbay Council has granted planning permission for 254 futuristic homes to replace a former brownfield industrial site in Paignton, Devon. The development, designed by The Harris Partnership (THP) for Devonshire Park Ltd, will sit comfortably on the local rolling topography adjacent to Devonshire Retail Park, a cutting edge and place-making development which opened in late 2019.
The residential scheme includes 11 different house types which are a mix of detached, semi-detached and short terraces ranging from one to four levels, plus apartment blocks of three and four storeys high. The 53 apartments will be arranged in two blocks, one of 12 units and one of 41 units.
With over 260,000 sq ft NSA for the 201 houses, and 28,000 sq ft NSA for the apartments, the project is estimated at a gross development value of £100m.
