Site adjacent to Portmore Golf Course set to become one of the largest ‘Passivhaus’ developments in Europe.
A £280million scheme for 250 ‘eco friendly’ homes plus a business park has been given ‘in principle’ planning permission.
Outline plans for the ‘green’ scheme at Mount Sandford Green on the outskirts of Barnstaple were approved by members of North Devon Council’s planning committee within the last few minutes.
It means the proposed development on a 12 hectare site between the Link Road and Portmore Golf Course could become reality.
The site is set to become one of the largest ‘Passivhaus’ developments in Europe, filled with the German-made ‘green’ homes.
