Parish Council: Considerations regarding planning application for Baker’s Yard

On Monday, the Parish Council planning committee considered the outline planning application for Baker’s Yard.

Below are the comments submitted to TDC planning department.

BPC agree in principle to the current outline proposals for the access, layout and scale of the development of this site.

However, wish it to be noted that the following issues should be addressed:-

  • That concerns from neighbouring properties regarding the ridge height of properties to the eastern edge of the development. Ensure alterations to the plans, such as height/storey reduction, can be agreed between the parties.
  • That a dialogue is opened between the developer/architect and DCC Highways to ensure residents’ concerns over increased traffic causing problems; particularly with access onto the A381 from Forder Lane.
  • That the provision of a safe pedestrian/cycle link toward the centre of Bishopsteignton Village is considered essential to any development.
  • That officers impose planning conditions which stipulate the retention of business premises classification B1 only and that no other classifications shall be granted.
