50 houses for West Hill - appeal dismissed!

An appeal challenging East Devon District Council’s refusal to build 50 houses on land next to Eastfield, West Hill, was this morning dismissed by the planning inspector.

It brings to an end two years of uncertainty and anxiety for many residents whose homes border the land subject to the planning application for 50 houses.

EDDC ploughs ahead with development plans regardless

Although East Devon District Council has been advised to decrease its housing numbers for the next 20 years, at yesterday’s Local Development Framework Panel meeting, where the final form of the document was debated, over 15,000 houses were voted through for the district.
