Development in Ashburton, Dartmoor National Park

February 4, 2014

We have today won a landmark planning consent for four houses on an area of brownfield land close to Ashburton, Devon. This is welcome news for the developer and for local people, who have seen the existing site deteriorate over recent years of vacant possession. It was necessary to prove the suitability of the site for dwellings instead of the existing commercial use as well as demonstrating that the existing shabby 1960‘s building could be sensibly remodelled to form an aesthetic worthy of the national park. Through negotiations with the Park Authority and the submission of a clear planning package, we received unanimous support and the building work will now begins in earnest. We thank the planning officers for their efforts in helping us reach this stage and we look forward to another successful redevelopment of a site which sorely needs a new and vibrant use.
