The properties, proposed by Bailey Partnership, are age-restricted for people aged 55 and over.

More than half a dozen bungalows for people aged 55 and over could be built in Dunkeswell if an application is given the green light.

Bailey Partnership has outlined plans to build the nine age-restricted bungalows on land north of Louis Way, close to the main Highfield development.

The application was submitted as the developer says it recognised the ‘need for older persons accommodation’ within the parish.

It added: “The proposed layout is in a courtyard style in accordance with the asipirations of the Neighbourhood Plan.

“The proposals have also been informed... to ensure that the proposals are elderly and dementia-friendly.

“The proposed courtyard will encourage social interaction between the elderly residents.”

Bailey says each bungalow will be single storey, adding: “The proposals would help meet the needs of an increasing number of older people who live in the settlement and who wish to continue to live in their own home a part of the community, rather than having to more away to find specialist accommodation.”

The application will be decided by district planners at a later date.
