https://www.teignbridge.gov.uk/planning/forms/planning-application-details/?Type=Application&Refval=19/01767/MAJ&MN=Y

(this is for 190 homes  - there are a further 10 separate planning apps each for a self build house on the same site).

Dawlish Town council is recommending refusal of this planning app on the following grounds:

 

Comment: RESOLVED unanimously by Members present and voting that this Council recommends REFUSAL of this application due to the following concerns: • Affordable housing percentage much lower than requested (11% rather than 25%) • Affordable housing stands out and is not tenancy blind • Health and safety concerns regarding proximity of play area and dwellings to the ponds • No provision for green corridors for wildlife • No bungalows, flats or lifetime houses  • Security and access of the site in relation to the secure unit of the hospital • Concur with the objection raised by the Police regarding layout promoting antisocial behaviour • Parking issues • The avenue does not comply with DA2 policy • Widths of estate roads appear below standard • Overdevelopment

You can bet TDC wont back up Dawlish Town Councils decision to refuse planning just think of all the incentive payments they will be missing out on.

Anyone got any ideas on where to put the Cathedral for when Dawlish becomes a city?

@HuwMatthews2 - suggest the site at Langdon where the 64 bed care home is supposed to be built. Why? Because I think a cathedral has more chance of being built there than any care home.

The go ahead has now been given (with various provisos) for the 190 homes to be built.

However, from reading the planning documentation it appears that the 64 bed care home and the employment land were not included in this planning permission and will thus be subject to separate planning applications - sometime in the future.

The breakdown of the 190 homes to be built is as follows;

168 -open market

22 - affordable housing

 

The affordable housing to be provided is as follows;

7 x 3 bed 

9 x 2 bed 

6 x 1 bed 

 

The above affordable housing (AH) should be a mix of 15 units for affordable rent and 7 for shared ownership.

Just to point out that having checked through the planning docs it seems that all the new housing on this particular site will be just that - houses. No bungalows, no flats and no lifetime housing.

So if you are a wheel chair user/have walking difficulties/respiratory issues etc which make using stairs a big No No, will there be anything built to suit your needs?

And the answer is.............?

Just received this confirmation from TDC planning department;

"I have recently received confirmation from the case officer that the building heights of the above application are all 2 or 2.5 storeys and that no lifetime home designs were bought to our attention by the developer during the planning process".

Due to its proximity to Langdon prison (hospital) and non-requirement for local people plus the no doubt wood hut cheap and nasty over crowded construction thus forming a modern slum how about

Criminal Close

Mental Way

Hide the truth Avenue

Another dump road

Single parent drive

Asbo lane
