Plans for 132 new homes have been lodged with Torridge District Council for land off Buckleigh Road - despite an ongoing appeal.

A PLANNING application has been re-submitted for 132 new houses on land to the west of Buckleigh Road in Westward Ho!

The proposals, which include 126sq m of retail space were originally submitted by Wainhomes in April, but were taken to appeal on the grounds of non-determination.

A decision was due on the application in July but after receiving no outcome from Torridge District Council by October, Wainhomes lodged the appeal with the planning inspectorate.

The original application received dozens of objection comments and was recommended for refusal by Northam Town Council.
