Torrington home plan won at appeal
Planning inspector overturns district council decision.
A DEVELOPER has won an appeal against Torridge District Council to build a house on the Hatchmoor Estate in Torrington.
The application, turned down by the council in June last year, was reversed by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.
Residents raised concerns about a possible overloading of the sewer system, but planning inspector Neil Pope said there were “no grounds” for opposing the proposed connection to the main sewer.
He also said: “The proposed development would not entail the loss of any important open space or townscape feature.
You may also want to watch:
“It would be designed and finished to match existing dwellings on this housing estate.”
He imposed a condition to ensure adequate car parking was provided.
