A public exhibition is to be held at the Town Hall in Colyton on Tuesday 6th February to invite feedback from the local community on plans to redevelop the former CeramTec factory on Sidmouth Road.
See below to view the information panels from the event and to take part in the survey.
Homes England, a public body with a clear remit to facilitate the delivery of sufficient new homes and promote a sustained improvement in affordability, acquired the site in June 2017. Shortly after this, planning and urban design consultants Peter Brett Associates (PBA) and LHC Architecture + Urbanism were appointed to help develop a vision for the regeneration of the closed factory site. The outline plans will see the creation of 60 to 80 much-needed homes, employment space and the creation of public open space accessible to the town.
It is proposed that the dwellings will reflect the character of Colyton, using sympathetic building materials and the streets will be slow-speed environments that are safe for pedestrians and cyclists. Measures are also being proposed to retain and enhance natural habitats within the development to nurture wildlife and landscape features.
The feedback gathered at the exhibition will be used to help shape the design of the development before an outline planning application is submitted to East Devon District Council. Homes England is committed to bringing this key site back into use and is working alongside stakeholders and the local community to achieve this.
(These will both open in a new window).
