North Devon Council have REJECTED the planning application...
23rd December 2016:
This development will result in the loss of allocated open space in the Adopted Local Plan, which is considered to make a significant contribution to the visual amenities of the locality and is well used open space by local residents. Its loss without appropriate alternative provision is considered unacceptable and contrary to the principles of good place making. The harm caused by the loss of this open space is considered to significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefit of this development and will be contrary to Policies DVS1, DVS2 and REC6 of the Local Plan and the principles in the NPPF
North Devon Homes do have a right of Appeal, and we will have to wait to see if they choose to exercise this right. Current thinking is that they may not.
So, Father Christmas DOES exist!!
