A planning application to demolish a hall in Budleigh Salterton in order to built six new homes has been given the go ahead.
A plan to demolish an existing hall and priest’s house in Budleigh Salterton to make way for housing has been given the go-ahead.
East Devon District Council planners have given the green light to the application for land at Clinton Terrace.
The permission will allow a hall, associated with the nearby St Peter’s Prince of Apostles Roman Catholic Church and a two-storey presbytery house to be demolished. In its place six new properties will be built.
An officers delegated report said the proposal would not cause any ‘detrimental’ impact on the living conditions of neighbours.
Earlier this year, planning permission had been granted for the development of a two-storey building alongside the church housing a new hall in place of the existing building.
This latest application previously received the backing of Budleigh Salterton Town Council, with EDDC ward member Tom Wright saying the proposal would provide ‘much need housing’ in the town.
