More than 60 homes - making up part of the fourth phase of Cranbrook’s development - will be built after an application was approved by district planners.

The development, outlined by Persimmon Homes South West, will be ‘entirely residential’ in nature.

Its application said: “The development will form part of the wider Cranbrook community, and will aim to satisfy the established need for both open market and affordable tenure types.”

Thirty per cent of the 69-home development will be offered as affordable housing.

A further ten per cent will address a Section 106 requirement for housing that is considered to be ‘affordable by design’.

The houses will be a combination of two, two-and-a-half and three story dwellings, offered in two, three and four-bed houses.

Car parking is also provided on plot.

The application added: “The houses will be a mix of red brick and render. A new identity is being formed for Cranbrook, and we aim to provide and continue a modern sense of characters that will be able to retain its style for the future.”
