After reporting strong figures in their first financial year, Redrow's operating division covering the region is now looking to build 630 new homes a year over the next three years.
Let's hope they go about it in a more intelligent way than their offering to Dawlish of an estate of Arts & Crafts inspired house types which got a torrid response from the Town Council Planning Committee. I'm waiting for them to market global cooling versions.

Has the Sangs requirement been sorted out then?
This is what the Inspector's Report of June 2013 said about the Warren Grove development and SANGS.
"10.7 In addition, the s.106 Agreement makes provision for financial contributions
toward the acquisition, maintenance and management of SANGS, to mitigate
the impact that recreational use by future occupiers of the proposed dwellings
might otherwise have on the SPA and SAC. The total of the contributions
would be calculated in accordance with the JIA. The Council has identified the
Dawlish Coastal Park as its preferred site for the provision of SANGS, but since
there is some doubt as to the timetable for its delivery [8.41], the s.106
Agreement contains provisions to ensure that the phasing of the development,
and occupation of the dwellings, would be in step with the delivery of
commensurate amounts of SANGS. As an alternative, if the Council were
unable to acquire and provide its intended SANGS in time, the S.106
Agreement makes provision for the owner of the appeal site to provide SANGS
on other land, with the prior approval of (and for eventual transfer to) the
Council. The phasing and occupation of the development would again be linked to the delivery of commensurate amounts of SANGS."
"12.64 I am satisfied that the terms of the S.106 Agreement entered into by the
appellant and the Council [INQ 21] ensure that adequate provision of SANGS
would be put in place prior to the occupation of the proposed dwellings [10.5 –
10.7], and the other relevant financial contributions would be paid at
appropriate stages of the development"
