About the topic
Application for 110 residential units (52 open market & 58 affordable units), associated access, servicing, parking, open space, allotments, allotment building, playspace and associated infrastructure.
The recent application to build 110 new houses on a greenfield site on the outskirts of Tavistock was rejected by the WDBC Planning Committee, by a unanimous vote. The application had met with overwhelming local opposition, and had been recommended for refusal by the Planning Officers. Serious questions are now being raised at how such an inappropriate development had been given Council backing following a meeting attended by only 3 members of the Planning Committee. Full story in the Tavistock Times 3 July.
The developers, Trand, had earlier claimed that they would launch an appeal if the application was rejected, in spite of the fact that the site has already been deemed totally unsuitable for residential housing by a Planning Inspector, following an appeal in 2010.
Permitted at appeal. August 2016
