The Devonshire Homes application on land between Otter Close and Mallocks Close, was refused by East Devon District Council in the spring.

A public inquiry appeal will take place at EDDC offices, Knowle, starting on Tuesday 6 December at 10am.  It is expected to continue for three days.

In response to the reasons for refusal, the developer claims the following:

– the development is keeping with the village and neighbours will not be adversely affected
– the land is not remote from adequate services
– the development would not harm the natural beauty of the area

Residents are welcome to speak at the inquiry and are requested to register on 6 December prior to 10am to do this.
