A planning application for 350 homes at Littleham, Exmouth, has been submitted by Clinton Devon Estates.

Clinton Devon Estates (CDE) has submitted a planning application to build 350 homes at Littleham in a bid to meet a ‘pressing need’ for new housing in East Devon.

The Plumb Park proposal includes affordable housing, new public open spaces and woodland.

Revised proposals following public consultations now include the addition of a small cul-de-sac of detached homes, plus future scope for pedestrian and cycle paths, linking the development with Littleham.

John Varley, CDE estates director, said: “There is no question that we face an ever-increasing need for housing in the Exmouth area and since 2008 we, as landowners in East Devon, have been in discussion with East Devon District Council, Exmouth Town Council and other community representatives to help find a solution.

“Plumb Park has been identified as a preferred location for new homes because of its proximity to the town, to employment space and to existing residential areas which means that it can genuinely deliver a sustainable development.

“We have long-established links with Exmouth and we are committed to making Plumb Park a lasting and positive legacy for future generations – both in providing homes, and also introducing public open spaces, networks of footpaths, cycle paths and a rich environment for flora and fauna.”

Architect John Baulch said: “We have introduced even more trees and landscaping to ensure that the site blends really well into the surrounding areas and we have provided larger areas of habitat for flora and fauna to greatly improve the ecology of the site.

“Overall, we have kept the vast majority of the buildings down to two storeys and in one area we have changed our proposals from terraced housing to a small cul-de-sac of detached houses following a site meeting with neighbouring residents.”

“The design proposals also include for the future provision of pedestrian and cycle links from Jarvis Close to the new Hilltop Park and improved access to countryside footpaths.”

Mr Varley said public concerns about traffic and sewerage had been thoroughly investigated and addressed.

A South West Water study into the existing sewerage network and treatment plants were also carried out, said Mr Varley.

“If it is found that the existing system does not have enough capacity, Plumb Park is likely to be the catalyst for improvements which could benefit a large number of existing residents,” he added.
