Planning consent for new homes in Woodbury and Newton Poppleford

Clinton Devon Estates have been granted planning consent for two separate village housing schemes to include affordable homes and a doctors’ surgery.

At the East Devon District Council Development Management Committee meeting on Tuesday 17th September 2013, the developments at Newton Poppleford and Woodbury were both approved unanimously by councillors.

The Newton Poppleford scheme will see 40 new homes and a purpose-built doctors’ surgery on land off King Alfred Way. The surgery will operate as a branch of the Ottery St Mary-based Coleridge Medical Practice. Up to 40% of the homes will be designated as affordable housing.

At Woodbury, 20 new homes will be built on Clinton Devon Estates land off Broadway, offering easy access to the local village amenities. Again, up to 40% of the homes will be designated as affordable housing.
