Teign Housing has been responsible for running the site provided for Travellers by Teignbridge District Council, Haldon Ridge, since it opened in 2014.
There are currently fifteen pitches on the site, but another three are due to be built in Spring of 2018. Each pitch has hard standing for either one or two caravans, and an amenity block with a small kitchen area, lockable store/shed and bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. There is an electricity hook-up and outside tap, as well as small garden area around each pitch and a communal green space for children to play on.
The site is situated in Haldon Forest.
To apply for a pitch on the site, you must fit the definition of a Traveller as defined by the Mobile Homes Act, 1983. “Gypsies and travellers” means persons of nomadic habit of life, whatever their race or origin’.
Currently the site is full but to be put on the waiting list, please contact the Traveller Site Manager, Lynne Garnett by calling 01626 322789 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We carry out an informal interview for the waiting list and can do this by phone, at the site office, or in the Teign Housing office in the centre of Newton Abbot.
