Planning application and next steps

The original planning application that was submitted under reference 17/01542/MAJ is no longer to be determined by us. The applicant has lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate due to no decision within the Statutory time period. Comments on the appeal can be made to the Planning Inspectorate directly.

A duplicate planning application has been submitted which is now being considered by us alongside two other applications for smaller, detailed, elements of the overall scheme.

You can see and have your say on these planning applications by following the links below; comments will be accepted up until the point of determination.  

  • 18/01276/MAJ duplicate application for outline mixed use including circa 1210 dwellings. This application is to be considered by Planning Committee on Tuesday 12 February 2019.
  • 18/01314/FUL application for change of use of barns to hotel, restaurant and bar
  • 18/01527/FUL application for section of the link road

In addition to the planning applications further work is needed to prepare a Wolborough Masterplan.

Landowners have sought ‘outline’ planning permission associated with the principle of development. If that consent is granted they will then need to submit a further ‘reserved matters’ application associated with matters like layout and design. The Wolborough Development Plan Document (DPD) would be relevant at both stages of the process but can only be taken into account once it has reached an advance stage of preparation.

When preparation of the DPD was approved the committee report explained that planning application decisions cannot be held up by the DPD process. National guidance expects planning authorities to consider and determine development proposals as soon as possible.

A planning inquiry is scheduled for March in relation to a similar planning application for Wolborough Barton (submitted June 2017), which is subject to appeal. It is important for Teignbridge Planning Committee to clarify areas of agreement and disagreement on the second application (submitted June 2018) which will help with matters to be considered at the inquiry. It is therefore necessary for Planning Committee to consider the application on the 12th February.
