Inquiries

Land at Penns Mount, Kingsteignton, Teignbridge District, Devon

DATE: 16 May 2017

This was a three day inquiry into two related appeals for a proposed development on an elevated site at Penns Mount, near Kingsteignton, one for 80 dwellings and one for up to 90 dwellings. The critical issues were landscape & visual impact, archeology and the proper interpretation of a development plan policy relating to the provision of a hilltop park on land which included but extended beyond the appeal site.

In a decision dated 15 June 2017 the Inspector allowed both appeals and made a costs award in favour of the Appellant.

Charles Banner appeared for the Appellant, Codex Land Promotion Ltd, instructed by David Seaton of PCL Planning.
