Old School Site Development

Plans for 8 Detached Houses

The Old School Site is being developed by Hilife Building Ltd, who are a local company.

They are intending to seek Planning Consent for 8 detached houses and a copy of the Plan is attached here


The entrance off the A377 will be moved further towards Exeter than at present, this is as discussed with Highways. Access will also be maintained to the electricity sub-station.


The access recently created from Sand Down Lane will not be used. It will form part of the garden of a house and the closure method will be agreed.


Hilife Building Ltd are looking favourably at funding an Island to help with crossing the A377 and to tidy up the old school path. The use of the path will need discussion/agreement with John Quicke if it is to be used by local residents.


Hilife Building Ltd, together with the Architect, Andrew Field of Heighway Field Associates of Exeter, will be attending a Community Presentation Event via Zoom to discuss the Plans and answer any questions.


This is arranged for Wednesday 5th May at 7pm. The zoom link is as follows:
