Homes for over 55's possible in Mylor
Specialist retirement home builders are looking at land in Mylor for their latest development.
Blue Cedar Homes, who have offices in Exeter, bill themselves as designers of “luxury retirement communities.” They are drawing up plans to build as many as 12 homes in the village, aimed at the over-55s.
Andrew Rowe, land manager at Blue Cedar Homes, said: “We are interested in delivering a scheme in Mylor Bridge but it’s very early days. We are looking to work up a proposal and then we will consult with the parish council, residents and everybody else at that point.
“We certainly take the view that it is best to let people know exactly what is going on – otherwise people just hear things by word of mouth.
“We will definitely be doing a consultation event somewhere down the line.”
Mr Rowe added that the recently published Mylor Parish Plan identifies housing for the elderly as a top priority in the village.
“We are looking at how we could bring one of our schemes to the village,” he said.
Earlier this year, developers put forward controversial plans for 30 homes on land off of Bell’s Hill. These proposals, from the Devon and Cornwall Housing Group, were met by fierce opposition from some villagers and a number of public meetings were held to debate the scheme.
A planning application has yet to be made in regards to these properties, but a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Housing said: “We anticipate submitting a planning application shortly.”
