The site for the first council houses in Honiton was agreed as Dowell Street. Councillor Juanita Phillips, a suffragette, first woman mayor in the westcountry and the first woman elected to Devon County Council, was involved in determining the internal structure, proposing that built-in cupboards needed to be present in three rooms. A photograph of the exterior of two houses in Phillips Square, which was named after her, is included.
