South Hams District Council: Stop the West Dartmouth Development plans to build on beautiful green fields


We want SHDC to drop the plans to build on green fields west of Dartmouth, which are not included in the area designated for development, and to consult fully with the people of Stoke Fleming and Dartmouth on the West Dartmouth Development Plan in general.

This is important because a development of this size is out of character with Dartmouth. It brings no benefits to the community, no jobs, no road improvements, no agreed number of affordable homes - nothing!

The development destroys wildlife and habitat where no proper assessment of the impact has been made.

It guarantees the building of 405 houses and still retains the option to build the same again later on the Park and Ride by Milton Farm! Dartmouth will become a sprawling urban area, starting at Norton Park.

SHDC must at least consult the people of Dartmouth and Stoke Fleming fully and impartially before any decisions are made.
