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 are currently finalising our initial technical studies of the site to ascertain its suitability for residential development.

    Should our studies confirm development is viable, we will submit a detailed planning application for a residential development in Summer 2019.

    We have completed our initial scheme and layout plan and held a public consultation on Wednesday 27 March. Please click here to view our information boards from this event. Please follow this link to leave your feedback.

    The feedback we receive during this public consultation will help us to finalise our proposals before we submit a planning application to South Hams District Council.
