ACL Properties wants to build three detached bungalows with private gardens and associated parking provision.

A developer behind a failed bid to build five homes on a residential Axminster site has submitted new plans to build three bungalows.

Earlier this year, ACL Properties sought outline planning permission for six homes at Allwood, between Woodmead Road and King Edward Road, which is currently occupied by a derelict bungalow.

Revised plans submitted in October outlined the construction of fives homes instead.

Despite the application being recommended for approval by planning officers, it was thrown out by the district council on the grounds that it would ‘represent overdevelopment of the site’ with ‘resultant harm to the streetscene’ and ‘severe impact upon highway safety’.

Now, ACL has returned with fresh plans for the site.

The developer wants to build three detached bungalows with private gardens and associated parking provision.

The application says each dwelling’s garden will deliver ‘more than adequate’ private amenity space and access to on-site parking provision will be made from King Edward Road by ‘utilising the existing access arrangements that service the existing dwelling’.

Two parking spaces are offered for each proposed home.

The application’s fate will be decided by East Devon District Council.
