New East Devon town plans submitted

Plans for a new community in East Devon have been filed with East Devon District Council and for the first time we can see how the houses may look.

The first 1,120 homes on the approved site off Honiton Road, Rockbeare, have been validated and are now available to view on the Council’s website.


The new community already has outline planning permission and a Section 106 agreement has been signed by all parties.

The application will be heard at a council meeting on March 8th.

Building heights, wall and roof materials, window and door types and even guttering and drain-pipe designs are included in the design document.

A 21-day period of consultation started in the second week of January.

Phase 1, includes the country park threshold, former A3 frontage and retained trees and hedgerows.

The application also includes site layout, construction details, appearance and landscaping of the Main Local Route and the Parsons Lane Link road connecting to the former A30.
