More than 100 people have so far attended a consultation on an urban extension to Northam this afternoon (Friday). The proposal for the site by developers Terrace Hill includes 500 homes and a new primary school on land off Daddon Hill. Development director Adam Pratt said the consultation, which goes on until 7pm tonight, had seen a range of views. He said: There have been a number of views, some supportive and some not so. People seem to be particularly interested in the primary school plans. They are concerned about doctors facilities, and this is something we will take away from this. Lenwood Road resident Steve Miller said he was a little worried about the proposals. He added: I just dont know who is going to live in these houses, and where they are going to work. Sue Wright, who has lived in Northam since 1968, said she was concerned about the sewerage and traffic. She said: Heywood Road is already a nightmare. Most of the people living in those houses will have at least two cars. That is 1,000 extra cars on that road; there is no getting away from that. Mr Pratt said he anticipated outline planning permission to be lodged with Torridge District Council in the autumn. The consultation is being held at the Northam Hall in Fore Street until 7pm tonight.
