Reserved matters application submitted for homes at Anchorwood Bank
A reserved matters planning application for 166 new homes at Anchorwood Bank has now been submitted by North Devon Homes and Pearce Homes. The application covers the layout, scale and design of the new homes and their surroundings, including the links between housing and other parts of the Anchorwood Bank development. A separate detailed planning application has been submitted for 6 additional homes on land not covered by the existing outline permission.
Detailed pre-application discussions have been held with planning officers, Historic England and the Conservation Officer and the proposals respond to these discussions.
The layout of the site remains as shown at the public exhibition with a linear arrangement of homes to make the most of riverside views. There are two piazza areas and a central park linking homes to the riverside walkway currently under construction. Vehicle access is at the centre of the site.
The design of the buildings has evolved from that shown at the public exhibition to more closely reference the character and materials of the local architectural vernacular, the site’s industrial history and its riverside wharf location. Red and buff brickwork, grey composite weatherboarding and a mixture of slate, tile and metal roofs will be used to compliment the roofscape found on the northern bank of the River Taw.
Homes range from 1 to 5 beds with the majority 2-3 beds.
Split of homes:
Open market: 135
Affordable (social rent and shared ownership): 37
