The impact on Teignbridge of the government moving the house building target goalposts earlier this week is that the new draft Teignbridge Local Plan, that was due to be discussed at next week's extraordinary TDC Full Council meeting, has now been put on hold.

Note that it is proposed that Hensford Park's completion would be within the timeline of the emerging Local Plan (2020-2040). The blurb in the document produced by the design team talks of completion by 2037/2038.  (see the 'Project Timeline' page) https://www.hensfordpark.co.uk/ In the EIA Scoping Request dated 12th October 2022 it is assumed that the year of completion will be 2035. ...

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
