Market Quarter Go Ahead

Our plans to transform the heart of the Devon town of Hatherleigh by creating a new Market Quarter have been given the go-ahead.

Work has now begun on the first phase of the development that will eventually bring 102 new homes to the town including much needed bungalows and purpose-built apartments as well as contemporary family homes.

The weekly market is part of Hatherleigh’s history and we are also building a brand new covered pavilion and new market square as part of this £20m development.

And we have committed to ensuring that while construction goes on the weekly pannier market will continue without a break until the new facility opens.

We plan to launch sales on site in spring with the first homes complete and ready for new owners by the Summer.

It is Kingswood’s second site in the South West and follows the successful completion of our Orchard View development in Newton St Cyres, Exeter where all 25 properties are now complete and occupied.

Kingswood Homes managing director, Paul Jones, said: “It has always been Kingswood’s intention to expand our footprint in the South West, as well as continuing to build on our growing reputation in the North West.

“The local community has supported our vision for this hugely important brownfield site in the heart of Hatherleigh town centre and the mix of bespoke properties, including apartments, bungalows and family homes, together with the revitalised market square, with new shops to encourage local trade, will become a focal point the community can be proud of.”
