Braunton homes proposal will be discussed at a public meeting on June 1

An application for 55 new homes in Braunton will be discussed at a public meeting on Wednesday, June 1.

The bid by Chichester Homes to build on land at South Park will be on the Braunton Parish Council agenda when it meets at 7pm in the Parish Hall.

Chichester Homes says the most appropriate use of the site is for residential and is proposing to create 19 affordable homes, of which 14 will be for social renting.

But members of the Love Braunton campaign group are concerned this and other developments will put too much strain on the village, increase traffic and stretch already thin resources.
