Developer Taylor Wimpey has submitted a planning application for a new residential development in Barnstaple.The outline application has been submitted to North Devon Council for up to 100 new homes, including 30 per cent affordable homes, on land to the south of Goodleigh Road. Taylor Wimpey has submitted the application after conducting a public consultation in July 2014, which gave local residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders the chance to help shape the proposals by providing their feedback. Mark Thorne, strategic project manager for Taylor Wimpey, said: We are pleased to have submitted our planning application for this high-quality residential scheme to provide much-needed new homes and investment for the Barnstaple area. We have worked hard to ensure that our development proposals reflect the priorities and aspirations of local people, and we are confident that it will both complement and enhance the surrounding community. We now look forward to receiving a decision on the plans. A decision on the application is anticipated by mid to late summer.
