A request for a scoping opinion has been submitted for up to 200 houses in Appledore

A SCOPING opinion has been requested from Torridge District Council on a proposal for a residential development of up to 200 houses in Appledore.

The 7.24 hectare site occupies land to the west of Hubbastone Road, and is almost adjacent to the proposed Torridge Marina development announced last week.

The proposal has been submitted by IJP Planning Consultants on behalf of developer Keith Curtis.

Managing Director Ian Jewson said: “The council has outlined plans to put housing on this land as part of their regeneration scheme, and the proposal is for up to 200 houses, although the exact amount is still to be decided.”

The agricultural site, located within a Coastal Preservation Area, is dependent on a landscape and visual assessment.

Should this and the marina plans get the go ahead, the area could see nearly 500 new homes built between Appledore and Northam.

Mr Jewson said the two proposals were unrelated.

In May last year, 230 people visited a public consultation on the plans.
