Bideford mayor confirms planning application has been submitted for the East-the-Water site.

A PLANNING application was submitted last week for the redevelopment of the Brunswick Wharf site in Bideford.

The plans submitted by Oceanside Developments, which comprise of a retail and residential development, were first revealed by the Gazette in December last year.

At the mayor’s introduction ceremony in Bideford on Thursday, Cllr Mervyn Langmead said the plans had been submitted to Torridge on Wednesday.

If approved, the site will be given a green light to transform from the derelict wharves into a hive activity with shops, restaurants, cafes and floating pontoons for boats.

The plans are expected to be available to view on the Torridge District Council website in the coming week.
