A planning application has been submitted for the redevelopment of the former meat factory site in Torrington.

Following years of dereliction and underuse, plans have now been submitted by Clayewater Homes Limited for a new factory, employment land, and 143 new homes.

The business wants to set up base in Torrington, and meet the strong demand for commercial units in the area.

A total of 21,266 square metres of open space would also be incorporated within the development.

The application has been submitted to Torridge District Council for consideration.
