Developer Bloor Homes submits proposals for 750 new homes, school and care facility off Clovelly Road in Bideford.

A planning application has been submitted for 750 new homes, a care facility, primary school and local centre in Bideford.

Last year the Gazette revealed plans for the Winsford Park development off Clovelly Road, opposite Atlantic Village and behind the Atlantic Park site.

Around 200 people attended a consultation for the plans in December, and outline planning permission is now being sought from Torridge District Council.

In its design and access statement, developers Bloor Homes said Winsford Park would provide: "an attractive and desirable place to live, work and visit; it will complement and be well connected to Bideford's established neighbourhoods.

"Within a strong network of green and open spaces, Winsford Park will make a significant contribution to meeting the area's housing needs, providing a range of quality new housing with accessible community facilities.

"It will respect its landscape and historic buildings and create new opportunities for wildlife, biodiversity, sustainable travel and living."

Plans for 550 new homes on the opposite side of Clovelly Road, next to Atlantic Village, are also pending consideration by Torridge District Council.

The Linden Homes outline proposals, submitted in March, also include 1.9 hectares of commercial land and either a primary school or 50 new homes.

A further planning application for the Atlantic Park site, involving an Aldi superstore and Starbucks drive-through, are also expected to be submitted soon.

Work on the McDonalds, Premier Inn and Brewer's Fayre restaurant is still yet to begin.
