May has sprung upon us, the days are getting longer and warmer which means that Summer is on its way and it’s time to tidy up spring plants, plant out summer flowers and get planning for autumn. It’s also a great time to plant herbs, as plants will establish quickly in warm soil, just remember to keep them watered if the weather turns dry.
With National Gardening Week behind us, our gardens should be a canvas of colour, you don’t need to be an expert in gardening, Charlie Dimmock and Alan Titchmarsh had to start somewhere!
May is the perfect sowing month, plants will be growing strongly in the higher temperatures and you will also be able to watch the bees, birds and butterflies in your organic pot. Why not take part in The Big Butterfly Count? Sit in your garden or the park for 15 minutes and see how many butterflies you see! Register your results here; https://www.bigbutterflycount.org/

A collection of luxury four and five bedroom homes called ‘The Grove’ is set to be built in Rockbeare, Devon, following a land acquisition by award-winning developer, Burrington Estates New Homes.
The 1.62 acre site off High Bank, Rockbeare, has detailed planning permission for a collection five dwellings, a mix of four and five bedroom homes. Rockbeare adds to the developer’s expanding portfolio in the South West, which includes the new homes at EXIII in Topsham and 120 properties set to launch in Pinhoe in early 2019.
The village of Rockbeare is a highly desirable location in the Devonshire countryside. The site has excellent road and rail links with Exeter and wider East Devon. Neighbouring town, Cranbrook, provides a number of local amenities including a supermarket, doctors surgery as well as primary and secondary schools.
As with all Burrington Estates New Homes developments, the homes at The Grove will be built to a high standard. Each of the five properties will include well-designed kitchens with integrated appliances, spacious family rooms and good-size bedrooms. The homes will benefit from double garages, excellent garden sizes and a private access road leading into the development.
Burrington Estates New Homes will contribute to the local infrastructure levy and are working closely with the local parish council to ensure construction progresses smoothly.
Colin Palmer, Managing Director at Burrington Estates New Homes, commented: “Whether we are launching five individual homes, like The Grove in Rockbeare, or a larger collection coming soon to Pinhoe, we give the same care and attention to detail to the build and customer service for each and every one of our new homes. Rockbeare has been specially selected by our developments team as it is a highly desirable place to live in the region, and ideally placed for for these luxury five bedroom properties.”
Colin continued: “We have already received a great level of interest and would urge anyone interested to contact a member of our sales team, or speak to one of the team at our sales office at EXIII Topsham.”

Burrington Estates New Homes welcomes the Help to Buy Extension, offering the scheme available on all sites throughout 2019. The Government funded scheme allows you to buy a brand-new home up to the value of £600,000 (in England) with just a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage up until 2021, this will then be superseded by the new scheme for first time buyers only on new homes up to the value of £349,000 in the South West.

The number of new homes available is at a 10 year low, with many of these properties unavailable on the affordable homes market. In a bid to tackle this crisis, we are proud to be creating 26 affordable properties at our latest development in Truro, Trispen Meadows.
Working in partnership with LiveWest, the South West’s largest provider of affordable homes, has enabled local families to access the new homes at Trispen Meadows. LiveWest have over 36,000 homes across the region and will manage the rented and shared ownership homes at the scheme.
Our ongoing partnership with LiveWest and Ocean Housing, who supported the 10 affordable homes at nearby development Penrose View, is the start of many collaborations with affordable homes providers, both in Cornwall and across the South West in Devon and Dorset.
Increasing affordable housing in the region forms part of Cornwall Council’s key areas for development. The county was awarded the second highest national allocation of New Homes Bonus in 2017, ensuring more new affordable homes become available. Mike Eathorne-Gibbons, Cornwall Council Cabinet Member representing the area including St Erme and Trispen, said: “I am delighted with this development. It meets a long overdue need for local affordable housing. The property designs and layout of the site are excellent. I’m sure tenants and owners will be very pleased with their new homes. I wish them well.”
David Matthews, Development Director at Burrington Estates New Homes, said, “We have built a great partnership with LiveWest that we hope to continue to strengthen as we build more homes across the region. Affordable housing is absolutely vital to the growth of the housing market in Truro, and we’re proud to offer an average of 30% affordable new homes on our developments.”
Shaun Marsden, Site Manager at Trispen Meadows, spoke for the whole team, “Whether we are welcoming new homeowners or tenants moving into their rented or shared ownership homes, our main aim is to create wonderful communities where people feel welcome and, most importantly, at home.”
Trispen Meadows is a collection of 85 new homes within the delightful village of Trispen. With nearby access to Truro, popular seaside towns and the Cornish countryside, the new homes have been greatly received on the open market. Each of the homes have been designed to be in keeping with the local surroundings and make use of local materials.
Work on the £2.75 million scheme began in October 2017 with the first new affordable homes handed over in November of this year.
Executive Director at LiveWest, Russell Baldwinson, said “We are delighted to be working alongside Burrington Estates. We are really impressed with the scheme and the quality of the homes. Our customers will be delighted.”
Open market properties at Trispen Meadows, a mix of two, three and four bedroom new homes, are available from £210,000. Help to buy, part exchange and a range of assisted purchase schemes are available. Contact email@example.com.
