AN application to expand a Woodbury Salterton-based business park has received objections because it is felt the plans do not adhere to a land-use plan.
After Woodbury Parish Council failed to support the proposals at a meeting held last month, two fresh objections for the expansion of Greendale Business Park have been received.
It is believed if the plans, submitted by property developers FWS Carter and Sons Ltd, were approved, the site could create more than 500 new jobs.
Amongst the new objections, The Highways Agency believes the plans fail to comply with the local plan.

A local plan is a detailed written itinerary which sets out a planning authority's development control policies for issues which include land use and transport for a period of around ten years.
The Highways Agency, reflecting on a transport assessement prepared by AECOM, an engineering and architectural design firm, said: "The assessment currently states that car parking will be provided in accordance with maximum parking standards contained within the East Devon local plan."

The agency said, however, that incorrect standards were stated for the use of light industrial vehicles.
Its findings concluded there would be provisions for 168 parking spaces rather than 208 which had previously been quoted.
Mat Carter, of applicant FWS Carter and Sons Ltd, said the application was made following a detailed review by the council of available land for the creation of new jobs.
