A developer has submitted plans to build ten new homes in Honiton.

London-based company ContainerSpace Ltd wants to build the terraced housing on land in Clapper Lane which was previously allotments.

The houses, which have been described as ‘low-energy’, would be laid out as three terraces - two of three homes and one of four.

The application said: “Together, these three terraces enclose a sheltered open space comprising both open gardens and, beyond them, a landscaped shared car parking area.”

The layout of the homes is horseshoe shaped, which the applicants say will protect them from traffic noise generated by the A30 Honiton bypass.

Each home would provide a car-parking space, together with two disabled spaces and three further spaces for visitors and existing allotments to the south of the development.

The application will be debated by Honiton Town Council’s planning committee before being decided by district planners.
