Plans for up to 21 homes to be built on the edge of East Budleigh have been opposed by the parish council.
Landowner Clinton Devon Estates has applied for permission to build the homes on a greenfield site off Frogmore Road, south of Syon House.
At its meeting on Tuesday evening, East Budleigh Parish Council heard numerous concerns from councillors and residents about the plan, and decided to object.
Councillor Mike Clarke said: “I think the main access on to Frogmore Road, which is renowned for flooding, is an issue.
The pedestrian access on to the main B3178 is with no real solution – nothing is proposed to enable people to cross the road safely for the facilities in the village.”

Councillor David Buss said: “Every square foot on the hill that’s covered in concrete increases the risk of flooding.
That development must not be built as it’s far too great a threat to people who live in that area.”
