Plans to build 36 new homes on the site of former care facilities in Exmouth have been recommended for approval by district planners.

The plan, for homes to be built at Exebank and Danby House, Mudbank Lane, will be considered by members of East Devon District Council’s development management committee, which will decide on planning permission, at its meeting on Tuesday, November 1. Ahead of that meeting, a report to the committee by planning officers has said permission should be granted.

The report states: “Given the site’s location within the built-up area boundary close to the town centre and all services within Exmouth, the need for housing and, in particular, affordable housing, and the lack of an objection from the highway authority, it is considered that the principle of development can be supported.

“Concerns have been raised regarding the relationship of a number of plots with existing development, the removal of trees and the proposed drainage.

“Revised plans have been received which, it is considered, address the majority of these issues.”
