Brimhay bringing home vital affordable housing


A community benefit society has been given the green light to begin work on redeveloping its land at Brimhay, Dartington, to provide a total of 32 new homes, many of them much-needed social housing for older or vulnerable people.

South Devon Rural Housing Association (SDR) received the final go-ahead from South Hams District Council on 13 November, after discharging conditions attached when the development was approved by planners in October 2017.


Work will begin shortly on the site in readiness for demolition and construction to begin in the New Year. It’s expected that the first affordable homes should be ready for occupation before the end of 2019.

Our out of hours emergency repairs number is 01237 47300. This number should only be used if the matter is an emergency repair.  Check your maintenance handbook if you are not sure.
