Councillors recommended to give green light for 350 houses and new school at Tews Lane.

PLANS for 350 new homes and a primary school near Tews Lane in Barnstaple go before planners with a recommendation for approval tomorrow (Wednesday).

North Devon Council’s planning committee meet at 10am to consider the broad outline application for the development, public open space and infrastructure.

The council has received 29 letters of objection to the scheme, but officers feel it is important to deliver housing and affordable homes to the area.
