The scheme will achieve:
The demolition and sympathetic redevelopment of the large, disused CeramTec factory which is out of character with the historic centre of Colyton.
A high quality design which is in keeping with the character of this attractive and ancient town in the Coly Valley.
It will provide a range of house types to meet local needs, including a high proportion of two bedroom homes. Six employment units will help to meet local requirements for small, serviced offices.
Retention and enhancement of key landscape and ecological features, and provision of a new public green space in the western part of the town.
Creation of a safe, attractive and low-speed environment for people to comfortably walk and cycle within the site, connecting the site with the existing facilities in the surrounding area.
