An application to build five homes at a residential Axminster site has been thrown out by district planners.

ACL Properties had originally sought outline planning permission for the six homes in Allwood, which is currently occupied by a derelict bungalow.

However, revised plans submitted in October outlined the construction of fives homes instead, and the application was recommended for approval by planning officers.

However the application, which received 16 letters of objection, was thrown out by East Devon District Council’s development management committee.

A decision notice posted on November 3 said: “The proposed development of five dwellings represents an overdevelopment of the site with resultant harm to the streetscene and a severe impact upon highway safety from the location of the proposed access off a narrow heavily parked road.

ACL had previously submitted an application to build eight homes on the site, but withdrew the plans before submitting its new scheme.
