North Devon and Torridge district council – call for sites

North Devon Council and Torridge District Council have jointly issued a 'call for sites'.

This is an open invitation to landowners, developers and community groups, who are interested in having land considered for a range of different uses, to submit specific information on sites they would like assessed. It will require the preparation and submission of a written representation, together with an appropriately scaled OS map showing the boundaries of any sites submitted.

Any sites submitted through this exercise will be assessed and included in an updated Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) – forming an important part of the evidence base for the emerging Joint Local Plan Review. In addition to new sites, the Councils are also considering updated details of previously submitted sites.

Opportunities will emerge from this process for housing and commercial development. If you own land with potential for development within the District, get in touch with our planning and development experts.

The Council is looking for land for both greenfield and brownfield land for housing and/or economic uses, so long as it is either able to accommodate 5 or more homes for residential use, or is at least 0.25ha (0.62 acres) in area for economic uses.

This information will be used to help planning officers understand which sites may be available for development.

The deadline for submissions is 4.45 pm on Friday 29 April 2022.

This may represent your opportunity to start to realise development on your land.
