Plans unveiled for 150 homes at Chivenor
One day consultation at Wrafton over proposals for a large mixed use development of houses and employment units.
PROPOSALS for 150 new homes plus employment land at Chivenor have gone on public display.
At a one day consultation event in Wrafton Royal British Legion Hall on Wednesday, the St Francis Group revealed its hopes for the ‘Chivenor Cross’ development on land stretching from the Chivenor roundabout to Perrigo, between the A361 and the Tarka Trail.
The company says it hopes to submit a planning application in January.
According to preliminary proposals, the mixed use development would see 8.2 hectares of employment land containing employment units with the potential to attract up to 200 jobs, plus 150 new homes, a local ‘hub building’, open spaces, park and ride facility and associated infrastructure.
