Proposals for the Bluehayes site also include a primary school, sports facilities, allotments and other amenities

A major development of up to 930 new homes in Cranbrook has moved a step closer, after an outline planning application was submitted for land at Bluehayes.

The plan will also see a primary school, sports facililties, allotments and other amenities on the site between the existing Cranbrook development and Broadclyst Station. It will also include an area to be used by businesses and the community.

The outline application does not go into detail. It is a request for East Devon District Council to approve the proposals in principle so that they can be progressed further.

Bluehayes is one of four development sites on land surrounding Cranbrook, as agreed in East Devon District Council's masterplan. A total of 4,170 homes will be built, along with another primary school, a special needs school, business units and public amenities.

A 'reserved matters' application has been submitted relating to land north-east of the Cranbrook Education Campus. This relates to 80 homes already granted outline permission, and provides details including road layout and landscaping.

The applications will be discussed by Cranbrook Town Council's planning committee this evening (Monday, May 20) but will be determined by East Devon District Council.
