A turf cutting ceremony has marked the start of building work at Cavanna Homes latest development, Barley Meadow in Dawlish, which will be connected to the town centre with a new cycle path being funded by the homebuilder.
The town’s mayor, Councillor Lisa Mayne was joined on site by representatives of the award-winning, Torquay based Cavanna Homes - Build Manager Andy Sykes, Site Manager Ian Crighton-Brown and Head of Sales and Marketing, Beverley Bridge.
Cllr Lisa Mayne said: “This is a very exciting time for Dawlish with a new development of houses coming to our town from Cavanna Homes whose recent Aspects development proved very popular with local families.
“It’s great to see work begin at Barley Meadow and I look forward to watching the site take shape over time”, she added.
Barley Meadow is opposite Cavanna Homes’ recent Aspects development and will feature 74 two to four-bedroom homes off Secmaton Lane in Dawlish. The first new homes will be ready in summer 2019.
