PLANNING REF: 18/01140
Kingskerswell Planning Committee concerns
Teignbridge are looking at allowing a very large industrial estate to be built on the site where Galliford Try had the temporary buildings when the bypass was being built. You will recall that before the temp buildings were there these were green fields. The proposed development is for 39 industrial units and a two storey office block. The entirety of that area of green will be obliterated.
There are two schools of thought:
- Teignbridge wants to add commercial properties as per the local plan.
The new road network provides easy access to that site.
It would add local employment opportunities and attract businesses to the area.
- This land would seem to be the first of many areas around the new road that will succumb to
development. Further eroding the village.
The area in question is effectively the gateway to the village, and should be kept green.
They should have reinstated the fields properly upon completion of the bypass.
The scope of the development is huge, A site of half the size would be adequate.
More business in the area will be used as an excuse for more housing development on local
green field sites.
