Two planning applications for new homes in Instow have been approved by North Devon Council.

The outline planning applications were approved following a meeting of the council’s Planning Committee on Wednesday 13 July.

Application 58606 was for 10 new homes on land at Marine Parade. Application 58626 was for 6 new homes on land at Anstey Way.

Chairman of the Planning Committee, Councillor Eric Ley, said: “A number of local residents made representations objecting to the Marine Parade site, apparently unaware it had been allocated for housing in the local plan. The allocation means that following extensive consultation the principle of development has been established locally. The draft local plan is currently with the government for examination. The Anstey Way site proved less contentious, but again residents appeared to be unaware that the land had already been identified as acceptable in principle for development. Technical consultees attended the meeting at the council’s request to respond to concerns raised by residents over drainage with the two applications only approved subject to the receipt of details fully resolving those concerns”.

Local ward member, Councillor Brian Moores, said: “I’m pleased that together the two applications have given the opportunity to provide affordable houses for the village on the Marine Parade site. It’s also good that the planning committee have had the opportunity to put in place conditions to resolve flooding and drainage issues.”

Following approval of an outline planning application, a ‘reserved matters’ application containing full details of the planned development must be made within three years of the consent, unless otherwise stated.

Full details of the applications can be found on our website.
