Plans to demolish Combe Martin garage

Bid to build 11 homes on Combe Martin garage site

A planning application has been lodged to build 11 houses on the former Rows Garage site in Combe Martin.

The site is currently leased by Hanson’s Garage, a 4x4 sales dealership, but the site owner has put in an application with North Devon Council planners to demolish the old filling station workshop and sales buildings.

It is proposed to construct a mixture of detached and terraced housing in a variety of styles and finishes.

It is also proposed to close the current vehicle access to Rows Lane and replace it with a new central access on to the site.
