Detailed plans for the first phase of a huge housing development at Larkbear in Barnstaple have been submitted to North Devon Council.

The blueprint outlines proposals for 244 new homes on fields off Old Torrington Road, near Sticklepath.

It has been submitted by Persimmon Homes South West, which - together with Elan Homes - was granted outline permission to build a new 820-home neighbourhood in October 2013.

A design and access statement submitted as part of the planning application states: "The vision for the proposal is to create a well-designed, high quality, predominantly low-density residential housing development that utilises the characteristics of the landscape to create an outstanding urban extension to Barnstaple."
