Plan for new homes in Exmouth opposed by councillors

PUBLISHED: 07:00 14 October 2017


Plans to demolish a workshop on the outskirts of Exmouth and replace it with four homes have been opposed by Exmouth Town Council’s planning committee.

The proposal involves a workshop which currently stands at the rear of Olleston in St Johns Road.

The plan is for four terraced houses to be built, each with three bedrooms, along with detached gardens and associated space for car parking.

Councillors voted to object to the scheme, saying it would be overdevelopment of the site, and the planned access arrangements were inadequate.

Councillors also protested that the site was outside Exmouth’s built up area boundary, as has been defined under strategy seven of the East Devon Local Plan, which covers development in the countryside.

East Devon District Council will make the final decision on planning permission.
