After plans for 182 homes rejected, developers return with reduced 62 home scheme.
A new plan for houses off Goodleigh Road in Barnstaple has been lodged less than a year after a large scheme was rejected at appeal.
Wainhomes (South West) Holdings Limited is now seeking permission for 62 homes and associated infrastructure on land which had formed part of a larger plan for 182 properties.
The current plan covers a third of the former site and focuses on a five acre section bounded by Goodleigh Road to the south and two properties, Tollgate Cottage and Wellclose, on the south eastern.
A statement accompanying the proposal said the scheme had evolved following the previous refusal. It said the reasons for refusal were taken into account and Wainhomes had revised the number of proposed properties.

The plan seeks to create a new vehicle access from Goodleigh Road, together with a mixture of terraced, detached and semi-detached dwellings with bungalows, two storey and two-and-a-half storey properties.
North Devon Council’s decision to refuse the previous application was upheld at appeal in February, inspector Jessica Graham saying it would cause ‘serious harm’ to the landscape setting of the town.
