Homes development option in Devon village

Published by Greenslade Taylor Hunt on 9th October 2019 -


Land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt are marketing a residential development site on the edge of the traditional village of Sheepwash in Devon.

The name Sheepwash is first documented in 1166 as Schepewast. This is an Anglo-Saxon word and means surrounded by water.

The agents are marketing an attractive residential development site at Luke’s Farm, West Road, Sheepwash, near Beaworthy, which has outline permission for 26 homes.

The site, which is to the West of the village centre, currently comprises a range of former poultry buildings and agricultural land and extends to around 3.51-acres (1.42-ha).

Torridge District Council granted outline planning permission for 20 open market dwellings and six affordable homes in October 2018. The permission is subject to a number of conditions.

The access is from the road to the South of the site off West Road. The scheme includes formal play areas and community green space to the North.

Appointments to view are being held on Tuesday, October 8th and October 22nd between 12noon and 2pm. Please contact the agents to book a viewing.

Offers are invited via informal tender and should be submitted no later than 12noon on Friday, November 1.

For more information please contact the Development Land and Planning Department on 01823 334466 or email
