The developer wants to work with the community to define development boundaries and the extent of the strategic gap.


A fresh application has been submitted to build a new dwelling, garage and car port in the garden of a Budleigh Salterton house.

The proposal for land at 11 Coastguard Road is similar to a previous proposal which was turned down by East Devon District Council planning officers under delegated powers. Concerns were cited at the time over the proposal being ‘out of character’ with the surround area.

That application was also turned down by the planning inspectorate at appeal.

The plan’s design and access statement claims the existing house is in an ‘oversized’ plot and this new application has answered concerns raised by the planning inspectorate.

The statement said: “The inspector gave one reason for the dismissing of the appeal and this had regards to the loss of privacy for the garden in number nine Coastguard Road; in this submission the window has been removed and replaced with two conservation skylights.”

EDDC planners will have the final say on the application.
