COUNCILLORS will tomorrow (Wednesday) visit the site of controversial plans for 150 new homes plus a business park at Wrafton.

The recommendation for the outline application at Chivenor Cross next to the A361 is one of approval and it will go to the full planning committee on Wednesday of next week (July 10) at 10am at the Civic Centre.

Developer the St Francis Group Limited is seeking permission for the homes plus 8.2 hectares of employment land, a community ‘hub’ building, open spaces, park and ride plus bus stops and associated access roads, footpath and cycle tracks.

Although the proposal is outside of the local plan, the planning reports says it is recommended for approval because of the housing it offers plus the opportunity for economic gains from the employment benefits.
