Edge-of-town Barnstaple site eyed by house builder.

PLANS for more new homes to the north of Pilton in Barnstaple have been submitted to North Devon Council.

Developer Barratt David Wilson Homes seeks outline permission to build up to 115 houses on land off Northfield Lane, across the main road from North Devon District Hospital.

Plans for 43 new homes on adjacent land at Westaway Plain were submitted to the council in October by Devonshire Homes.

The Northfield Lane application also outlines proposals for associated parking; road and drainage infrastructure; public open space; landscaping and pedestrian links.
