Plans submitted to demolish buildings at Moreton House in Bideford and develop 20 new houses.

Plans have been lodged to extend Bideford’s College Park development in Abbotsham Road with 20 new houses.

Redrow Homes has submitted the plans for land to the north east of Moreton House to Torridge District Council.

The application seeks to demolish buildings on the land and build the homes in addition to the 232 new homes being built at College Park.

A mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes are planned.

A heritage statement submitted with the application said the former Grenville College Grade II listed building, the listed 19th century stable block and the park and Moreton gardens would all be safeguarded.

Meanwhile developers Bloor Homes, the other developers at the College Park site, have announced this week their side of the development is near completion.

A spokesman for Bloor Homes said it only had 13 houses left for sale of the 96 it was building.
