OUTLINE plans for up to 550 houses, commercial units and a new primary school in Bideford have been submitted to Torridge District Council this week.

Proposals for the Clovelly Road Park development on 85 acres of land to the rear of Atlantic Village were first revealed by the Gazette in November.

Dozens of people turned out to a consultation on the plans by developers Linden Homes, with many saying they feared for the loss of green space.

A planning application for the 13.77 hectare site with 1.5 hectares of commercial use land will be sited opposite the proposed Premier Inn and McDonalds development.

The plans also include land for a primary school which would be used for sports pitches or a further 50 residential units if not needed.

The residential dwellings are set to comprise of two, three and four-bedroom houses, flats above garages and shops.

Torridge District Council is expected to make a decision on the application by May 23.
