Teignbridge District Council has granted planning permission for a mixed-use scheme in Newton Abbot, comprising 450 homes.

The Langford Bridge scheme, by developer CEG, also includes 22,000 square metres of employment space, a local centre for retail and community use, green infrastructure and play space.

It will be built on over 25.65 hectares of land.

Planning and development consultancy Turley advised on planning, economics, EIA, sustainability and design aspects of the proposals and the section 106 negotiations.

Jon Allen, head of strategic development (south) at CEG, said: “In addition to helping to meet local housing needs in this popular town, we have secured planning permission for employment space and facilities which will help to deliver a sustainable scheme. We will be marketing the site to housebuilders in the coming weeks.”

Phil Jones, director at Turley, said: “ Not only will the development provide high-quality housing for the region, but it will also provide significant employment space for the local business community and create green space and a centre for local residents.”
