Revised plans to be discussed at NDC planning committee

North Devon Council’s planning committee is being recommended to approve amended plans for 53 new homes in Yelland – as long as a youth shelter is also built.

Plans for the Allenstyle Road site were originally rejected in February as only 11 were proposed to be ‘affordable’.

And after a government inspector rejected an appeal in June, new plans outlining 16 affordable homes are set to come before the planning committee on Wednesday.

At the time, residents also aired concerns about flooding and traffic issues.
