Potential development sites for Kingsbridge
We’re sure that many of you have closely followed recent major development issues in the town e.g. at DPD sites K1 & K5 and a solar array farm off Belle Hill. Well planning matters never stand still and a very important public consultation by South Hams District Council is currently underway across the whole district in preparation for the authority’s “Our Plan” due in late 2015.
Key to this is the consideration of what land may have the potential for new development. All information relating to Kingsbridge can be found on the authority’s website at: www.southhams.gov.uk/siteassessment and we urge you to take stock of the sites earmarked for consideration.
Eight sites have been considered across the town and details about their constraints and opportunities are recorded in site information tables. These tables present facts about the sites in relation to whether they can be physically developed or whether they are in a suitable location. However, please remember that this consultation will not make any actual decisions and the authority is asking: What do you think? and has anything been missed? For example, maybe you feel a particular site is more favourable than another or that some of the constraints could be overcome.
We’ve posted the information on the large town council notice board at the bottom of Fore Street and a static display with all maps and relevant tables is available for you to view in the Council Chamber at Quay House during opening hours. But please note the looming deadline and that your comments are required by Friday 12th September.
Town councillors will discuss the proposals at the full council meeting starting at 7.00 p.m. on Tuesday 9th September in Quay House. You are invited to attend and make statements or ask questions at the outset of this meeting.
