Teign Housing completed three new 2 bedroom flats for affordable rent in Dawlish. The three flats have been built on the former Salvation Army site which was sold to the housing association by Dawlish Town Council in March 2013.
The former Salvation Army site had been dis-used for some time and in a public consultation meeting held by Dawlish Town Council, the overwhelming majority voted for the site to be used to provide more social housing for the town.
Mike Hanrahan, Teign Housing’s chief executive said: “We are really pleased to be able to provide Dawlish with these three new homes. We have worked closely with the town council and our developers to make sure the site was used to its full potential. This project is a good example of how, well thought out, smaller developments can be built in existing spaces to help enhance our towns and villages.”
The flats have been designed to complement the existing buildings surrounding the site and include external amenity areas and storage.
Teign Housing will also be renovating 1 Luscombe Terrace, an old terrace house just around the corner from Park Road. This will be made into a large five bedroom family home and is due for completion in November 2014.
