Planning application and next steps

Current Update

Messrs and Ms Rew’s proposal for mixed use development, including around 1,210 homes, at Wolborough Barton has been approved by the Secretary of State.

Teignbridge's Planning Committee has resolved to grant planning permission for up to 450 homes on the land at Langford Bridge, adjacent to Kingskerswell Road.

Wolborough Barton

A planning application was submitted under reference 17/01542/MAJ and was not determined by us within the statutory time frame. The applicant appealed to the Planning Inspectorate.

The planning inquiry associated with the appeal ran for 3 days from 26 March 2019 and a 2 further days from 11 June 2019.

The Inspector was Frances Mahoney. Members of the public were permitted to attend the inquiry and, at the Inspector's discretion, express their views.

The appeal documents including a Statement of Common Ground and all the parties' appeal statements and proofs of evidence can be viewed here.

The Inspector's Report for this appeal was passed to the Secretary of State in January 2020 with a decision to approve the scheme (subject to conditions) was issued on 3 June 2020.

Costs decision

Langford Bridge

A planning application for the east of the allocation was submitted in February 2019 under reference 19/00238/MAJ and has been approved by Teignbridge's Planning Committee subject to the completions of a Section 106 agreement.

Next Steps

Landowners have sought 'outline' planning permission associated with the principle of development.  Next, they will then need to submit a further 'reserved matters' application associated with matters like the developers' layout and design.
