We're developing more homes for people in housing need

We’ve signed contracts to develop more than 30 homes for affordable rent.

The 32 homes are in Liskeard – our first development in Cornwall.

There will also be seven homes for shared ownership sale through SO Living.

The 39 homes sit on Persimmon Homes’ Trevethan Meadows development and have been bought by us as part of a Section 106 agreement.

This means we will offer the rented homes to people with connections to the Liskeard area.

The first 13 homes are due for completion in mid December and will be ready for occupation by January. The remaining 26 will be ready by next summer.

The homes are a mix of two and three-bed homes, with two classed as Lifetime Homes, which means they are easily adaptable as needs change. Two of the shared ownership homes are four-bed.

The rental income we get from these homes will go straight back into investing in homes and services for our tenants in and around Plymouth.

Bob Fish, PCH Development Manager, said: “Although Plymouth is our core area, it’s great that other planning authorities and builders see us as a partner in delivering homes, wherever that may be.”
