Otterton landowners have proposed four plots of land which could be used for up to 15 new homes - and now villagers can have their say.

A public meeting is being held in the village hall on Tuesday, November 6, at 7.30pm.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) asked land owners to propose land to develop.

A map indicating where these are is on the parish notice board, adjacent to the Kings Arms.

The parish council has to submit a proposal to EDDC as to how and where it is prepared to accept new homes up to 2026.

If they do not, the village could have planning decisions forced upon it.

Seven parcels of land were proposed; two are not being considered because they are either ‘undevelopable’ or because the landowner does not wish to develop.

One parcel of land, beyond North Star, has issues about pedestrian access into Ottery Street.

The other four are: The Old Orchard, Behind Hayes; by Lea Road, Behind Hayes; a field north of Bell Street; and a patch of land east of Ottery Street, towards North Star.

Clerk David Ottley said: “This (meeting) will enable parishioners to state their opinions about how they would like the village to change, if at all.

“In addition, consideration will be given to village amenities, such as car parking, and a shop…

“Each household will receive a questionnaire in the November newsletter.

“They will be asked to complete four questions about how you would like the village to be developed, if at all.”
