(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?
