Up to eight homes could be built in Honiton if proposals are given the green light by district planners.
Outline permission was granted by East Devon District Council (EDDC) in May 2013, for the construction of eight dwellings on the site of Honiton’s former Royal British Legion (RBL) building, in Dowell Street.
In the outline application, applicant Exton Ltd said the old RBL building had been vacant from August 2011, due to Honiton RBL’s considerable debt.
According to the proposals, it was decided that disposal of the land would be in the charity’s best interests and, last month, construction workers began work on demolishing the old RBL building.
The application for the new homes envisages construction of ‘high quality family housing’ on the site.

According to the plans, the design of the new houses will be interpreted using simple, traditional and sustainable materials.
Exton Ltd says that given the surrounding area and close proximity to the town centre, residential uses were considered to be the most appropriate for the site.
