A new planning application will be submitted for the Brunswick Wharf site following significant changes to the original proposals.Simon Maunder, of Oceanside Developments, said he was hoping to change the footprint of the buildings and increase parking spaces, but the roof heights would not change. He told the Gazette: The primary reason for our amendments are that a number of agents and house builders have all advised us that in the current marketplace, there would be little demand for four-bedroom flats and townhouses at Brunswick Wharves, and much greater demand for two-bedroom flats. We have therefore taken their advice and altered the mix accordingly. Planning permission for the site was originally passed in December 2014 by Torridge District Council. At Bideford Town Councils meeting on Thursday, Councillor Mervyn Langmead told councillors he was anxious to see the site developed. He said: Ive given promises in the past to this council and they have let me down. Whether it is in my lifetime or not, I dont know. I am sick and tired of looking at that mess over there for the last 25 years. Its about time it was done. Mr Maunder said he had hoped to speed up the process of changing the proposals by submitting an amendment to the existing application as he was ready to break ground. We have high calibre commercial tenants very keen to open their restaurants and shops as soon as possible, he added. To give all parties a fair chance to review on our changes, Torridge District Council has asked us to submit a new application instead, which being more complex, requires updated reports and will slightly delay the commencement of the cheme by a few more months. But we remain as keen and excited about bringing an even better scheme to Brunswick Wharves in the long run.
