Land at Godwell Lane

Godwell Lane - Ivybridge - Devon - PL21 0FH

Taylor Wimpey is preparing outline plans for a new residential development on land adjacent to Godwell Lane and Exeter Road, Ivybridge.

  • Overview

    Land at Godwell Lane

    We have an option to purchase the land from the existing landowners subject to planning permission being granted for our proposed residential development.

    We undertook public consultation and finalised our technical investigations during 2019.

    Our full detailed application was submitted to South Hams District Council at the end of 2019 and validated early 2020. The formal consultation period has ended and the scheme is being refined to address the technical matters raised. We anticipate a planning decision late 2020.

    We therefore anticipate a planning decision during 2020 which should enable the development to commence in 2021.
