Langdon Hospital. The elephant in the room in terms of the location of all the new housing development. There, I've said it. And I don't care how politically incorrect that might deemed to be by some. The patients at that hospital are there because they have been found guilty in our courts. They have mental health issues. How many have committed violent acts against others? ...

Devon County Council is responsible for highways. This is the response of DCC Highways department re this planning application: "Observations: The proposal is an extension to the existing Meadow Park. Roads to access the site are steep in places, but are currently used to access a residential area and are therefore considered to be suitable for this proposal. The width of the ...

For those interested in this: the online planning documents now show very recent correspondence in which TDC put forward just how much monies would need to be forthcoming from the developer in terms of S106 payments and environmental mitigation costs in order for this scheme to get officer backing. The officer correspondence also points out that as the planning application is for 28 houses that ...

There's a bit about this planning application in today's Dawlish Gazette. Have heard that the planning app. may be heard by councillors at either the next planning committee (November) or the one after that. There's also a letter in the Dawlish Gazette (there have been letters about planning issues published for the past few weeks now) about the TDC Local Plan and all the planning ...

Just checked the agenda for this coming Monday's (21st October) TDC Planning Committee. There is a site visit report back on this application and it looks as though the planning application will be discussed at a future planning committee meeting (in other words it won't be decided by an officer). http://www.teignbridge.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=20582

Yes Mcjrpc I believe you are correct in what you say. However, as Teignbridge is yet to have its proposed local plan adopted it is, as I understand it, still open season for any planning applications to be submitted re developing land wherever developers/land owners think they can get planning permission to build whatever it is they wish to build (houses usually it seems) either via an officer ...

Counted 23 objections. And anyway it's not the number of objections that determine whether or not something ultimately gets planning permission. What determines that , one way or the other, is local planning policy/ national planning regulations. The successful Appeal concerning the Shutterton Park housing development is a case in point.

As I see it, until and unless the proposed Teignbridge Local Plan is adopted Teignbridge does not have a local plan (yes, I know that's obvious but just thought it needed saying). Therefore I suspect there will be a frenzied free for all by landowners and developers in the Teignbridge area, which of course covers Dawlish. They need to get their plans approved you see before any adopted Local Plan ...

So much for Localism. Remember it? It was that great policy trumpeted by the Coalition when they first came to power. Local people would determine what should be and what should not be built in their locality. Ha, bloody, ha.
