Councillors consider 250-development plan in Devon
A 250-home development in Devon is being considered by Teignbridge planning councillors. Exeter-based firm Eagle One Homes wants to create housing, a community orchard and a public park on the site at the edge of the Kingsteignton site.
Development of sustainable buildings
The development of the sustainable buildings could generate £2 million for the Teignbridge District and Devon county councils in local benefits under the Government’s New Homes Bonus Scheme, reports thisisdevon.co.uk.
A quarter of the homes set to be developed will be ‘affordable’, with priority being given to Kingsleighton residents.
A development control meeting will take place on Monday (3rd August) where Teignbridge councillors will be asked to approve means of access as part of consent for the development to take place.
Submitting outline application
Andrew Rowe, land manager at Eagle One Homes, said:
“We are pleased to be submitting an outline application that will bring a range of real benefits to Kingsleighton, not least in meeting identified local housing need.”
The plans for the development were made public at an exhibition in April, which Mr Rowe said was ‘well attended’ and provided a lot of positive feedback about the community benefits the scheme would provide, including the park and the orchard.
