Plans are set to go on show for a 500-home extension off Daddon Hill in Northam. What do you think?

Plans for an ‘urban extension’ of 500 new houses on the outskirts of Northam are due to go on show for the first time next week.

Consultations have begun on the proposals for the Daddon Hill site, to the south of Bay View Road, by developers Terrace Hill, part of Urban & Civic.

As well as houses, the outline plans for the site – which is earmarked for development in the draft joint local plan – include a new primary school and nursery, a community centre, public open space and playing fields.

Adam Pratt, development director for Terrace Hill, said: “This is an important site in Northam that will deliver much needed new homes and a new primary school.

“We hope people will come to the public exhibition to find out more about the draft plans and discuss them with members of the project team.”

A public consultation will be held at Northam Hall in Fore Street, from 2pm until 7pm, on Friday, June 26.

The consultation closes on July 24, after which an application will be submitted to Torridge District Council.
