Council calls for retention of Honiton right of way

Affordable homes development planned for derelict land.

A DERELICT parcel of land, sandwiched between High Street and Northcote Lane, in Honiton, could be developed to provide new affordable homes.

Honiton Town Council is supporting a planning application for eight dwellings on land adjacent to Vine Passage.

DRD Construction is seeking permission to build on the site, which has been a wasteground for a number of years.

However, members of Honiton Town Council’s planning committee are keen to ensure a public right of way remains.

They have recommended the retention of the right of way be a condition of planning approval.
