Bid to build 430 homes at Broadclyst

PUBLISHED: 13:45 26 September 2013 | UPDATED: 13:45 26 September 2013

Millwood Homes Ltd is seeking planning permission from East Devon District Council to build up to 430 new homes in Broadclyst.

The houses, if given the green light, will be constructed on land at Pinn Court Farm.

The build project is part of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point scheme, a growth programme expected to deliver 20,000 new homes and over 25,000 new jobs in Exeter and East Devon by 2016.

The proposal would see two care homes, providing up to 60 bed spaces each, a retail centre and a skate park.The application also includes a safeguard vehicular route to Langaton Lane, served off a new access from the highway.

However, the plans have been rejected by various people and organisations.

Commenting on EDDC’s website, Broadclyst Parish Council objected, stating the development ‘must be proved to justify the irrevocable loss of Grade One agricultural land’.

Grade One land produces a high annual yield, and covers a significant proportion of ground at Pinn Court Farm.

Other concerns raised include the large volume of traffic the build might create around surrounding villages, as cars and heavy good vehicles might not be able to flow smoothly through country lanes and narrow roads.
