Baker Estates launches community consultation on second site in Appledore

North Devon Gazette

Baker Estates has acquired an interest in the land which lies immediately to the north east of its existing site at Wooda Road in Appledore, where construction is now under way to deliver 89 new homes.Â

The award-winning south west housebuilder now plans to submit an outline planning application to Torridge District Council for up to 36 homes and has launched its community consultation engagement.Â

Graham Hutton, Development Director, Baker Estates, commented: “Unfortunately, due to the on-going pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision not to hold an in-person public exhibition event. Â
“Instead, we have developed a comprehensive engagement strategy, including a letter to more than 200 local properties, inviting them to visit our project website where they can view our online exhibition and leave feedback ( We are also offering individual video conferences or telephone calls.Â

“We take public engagement very seriously at Baker Estates and place it at the forefront when it comes to planning.”Â
