Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s, with land used mainly for farming and grazing. Some growth took place during the early 1900s, and again during the post-war years. The population declined slightly between 1991 and 2011, a result of few new dwellings being added to the area and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
Devon Meadows is a predominantly rural area. Land is used mainly for market gardening, flower growing and grazing.
Major features of the area include Glover Recreation Reserve, Devon Meadows Community Hall and Devon Meadows Primary School.
