Two new dwellings on the edge of Hemyock in the Blackdown Hills AONB

Whilst Mid Devon are currently exhibiting a lack of 5 year housing supply, our clients approached us at just the right time to catch that window of opportunity!

We submitted a planning application for them adjacent to, but just outside the settlement limits.  The planning officer supported the application in the face of sustained objection from interested parties to change in the AONB

“The site is well located to other dwellings which are located within the settlement limit of Hemyock. The proposal is considered to be acceptable in that, in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 11 of the National Planning Policy Framework, the benefits of provision of dwellings that respects the existing development pattern of development along Lower Millhayes, acting as infill development and has no unacceptable impact on highway safety, visual amenity and the amenity of neighbouring residents, are considered to outweigh the harm caused by the provision of two new dwellings in a countryside location outside of the defined settlement limit of Hemyock.”

and after a few hours in planning committee, we are delighted to have received the benefit of planning permission!
