Planning given after house number reduced

George Wimpey has won planning permission to build 29 homes for the final part of the Manor housing development in Tavistock in West Devon.

The developer originally applied for 42 homes in October but reduced the number of homes by 13 because of concerns about over-development and the loss of trees.

The new proposal, which now comprises 17 two-bed apartments and 12 four-bed houses, took up less of the woodland area and no trees would need to be felled to make way for housing.

The woodland will be an amenity area which will extend to the community beyond those living on the site.
