Homefield Farm, Sherford, Devon

Site layout

Purpose of this Consultation

A planning application for development at Homefield Farm, Sherford, Devon was submitted to South Hams District Council in 2021 (LPA ref: 4751/21/FUL).

The planning application relates to proposals by Mr & Mrs Causer for the following works:

“Conversion of existing buildings to create 3 no. holiday lets and a single storey extension 2) Demolition of existing retail unit 3) Replacement of existing commercial building with 1 no. self-build dwelling 4) Associated works to include a comprehensive landscape and ecology enhancement works.”

The application was refused planning permission on 8 March 2022. Mr & Mrs Causer lodged an appeal against this decision. The appeal will be determined by a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. The appeal reference is APP/K1128/W/22/3303162.

  • The planning application was supported by several plans and documents. The appellants now wish to amend the submitted landscape plan and submit a new site layout plan drawing to the Planning Inspectorate as part of the appeal proposal:
  • A proposed site plan drawing (drawing ref: 4532/01 Rev. B – Grays Architecture Ltd). This plan was not presented to the local planning authority as part of the planning application, although it reflects the general arrangement shown on the submitted landscape drawing by Barnes Walker.

An amended landscape drawing (drawing ref: M3342-PA-01-V5). This drawing would supersede the landscape drawing submitted to the local planning authority as part of the planning application (drawing ref: M3342-PA-V1-V4 – Barnes Walker). The only change made is the removal of a pergola feature to the outdoor seating to the proposed holiday let identified as ‘Unit 1’ on the drawing.

The following table clarifies which plan is additional and the landscape drawing to be revised:
