What with the all the broohaha going on at the moment about the Hensford Park proposal (see page 5 of the latest edition of the Dawlish Gazette) it's very appropriate that in the same edition, on page 37, is an article explaining why TDC has to build a certain number of homes (central government dictate) and why it is important for local authorities to have a Local Plan (without one developers ...

Yes I know you did Linda, I watched the youtube video of the meeting. But as I feel sure you know as well as me - when push comes to shove it isn't what local people want it is what planning policies dictate and the number of houses each district has to build that trumps everything.  And anyway the site was allocated for development in the present Local Plan so if it wasn't that particular ...

No wonder landowners are so keen to have their land identified for development. Just look at the increase in value! “Whereas agricultural land has a value of £8,000 – £12,000 per acre, the same land with a residential housing consent can achieve 30, 40 or even 50 times that value.” https://www.fwi.co.uk/business/planning-for-housing-on-farmland-6-steps-to-success

I have highlighted in blue the bits referring to Land at Langdon Farm and Land off Langdon Road. We await to see how much notice TDC planners have taken of our town council's comments. Dawlish Town Councils ...

See below for my thoughts: About two thirds of the land shown as being part of the Hensford Park proposal was put forward by its present land owner for consideration by TDC as development sites in the emerging Local Plan (2020 – 2040). The two pieces of land put forward were: Land at Langdon Farm Land off Langdon Road The third piece of land, the upper part of the Hensford ...
