Courtlands appeal rejected

17:00 21 February 2012

Lympstone is celebrating after a developer’s bid to overturn the refusal of a new 154-home ‘village’ at Courtlands Cross failed.

Strategic Land Partnerships had applied to build the homes including business units, a doctor’s surgery, a shop/cafe, nursery and community facilities on a green wedge between Lympstone and Exmouth.

The developers appealed to the planning inspector on a procedural matter, before district planners recommended refusal.

And now the inspector has rejected the appeal, safeguarding the green wedge.

It is the third major planning appeal East Devon District Council (EDDC) has won in as many months following 50 homes at West Hill and 56 at Tipton St John.

  • EDDC please note This was for a plan for 154 houses. Rejected partly because of lack of school places in Exmouth. The Maer valley has 350 houses planned with far fewer social benefits. We need some consistency here.
