Proposals for a ‘well planned high quality residential environment’ on a 24-acre site bordering Goodleigh Road and Derby Road have been submitted by Wainhomes (South West) Holdings Ltd.

The application also seeks permission for associated roads, sewers, landscaping, parking and garages. It mentions new vehicular accesses from, and the possible widening of, Goodleigh Road.
