The land opposite Langdon Road Industrial Estate is close to the centre of the village and extends to approximately 6.67 acres.
The village has a range of facilities and amenities including St John The Baptist Church, primary school, a range of shops, including a post office, a pub and veterinary surgery.
Torridge District Council gave outline consent for 28 homes with associated infrastructure works in 2017, subject to a number of conditions.
As part of the consent the council ruled that 32% of the new homes are to be affordable, and any developer would be liable to pay around £31,797 in Section 106 Agreement contributions.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Government has extended the expiry date of this permission until April 2021.
Meanwhile a detailed planning application for 38 homes at the site was submitted to the council in March 2020 and is under consideration.
A mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes are proposed in a range of terraced, semi-detached and detached designs. Eleven of the properties on site are to be affordable.
The scheme will be accessed from Mill Road with a new priority “T” junction. In addition there will be a new footpath link through the site and a new footpath on the grass verge beside the industrial estate.
Under the detailed planning application there would be a commitment of around £237,000 by the developer towards education, highways and affordable housing. These obligations are subject to change.
Offers are invited either on an unconditional basis or a conditional basis – conditional on the grant of the detailed planning permission only.
The firm is also marketing development land at Southwood Meadows, Buckland Brewer, for the same client and these two sites could be disposed of as a package.
