The residents of Challaborough have fought long & hard to squash an application to re-build a big house at Waves Edge on the sea front, adjacent to the coastal path – second house down as you walk from Bigbury-on-Sea. The original application was taken to South Hams DC’s Development Management Committee and rejected. Now the developer’s appeal to the Inspector to overturn this decision has been dismissed – with no costs awarded.
The Inspector concluded:- ‘The adverse effects of the development are sufficient to mean that it would fail to conserve the landscape and scenic beauty of the AONB and that it would conflict with the development plan when taken as a whole. No matters have been found to outweigh this conflict. For the reasons given above I conclude that the appeal should be dismissed.’
The full appeal decision is available here:- APPEAL DECISION – 3176134

Below, you will find links to the final draft of Thurlestone’s Neighbourhood Plan, which is now going out for consultation, an overview of the entire process, and a summary of the plan for ease of reference. These documents were kindly supplied by Sue Crowther, Chair of the NP Group in Thurlestone. Many of the issues are common to Bigbury and these documents may provide some helpful pointers.
The AONB Estuaries Partnership has produced the following biosecurity plan to help stop the spread of marine non-native species around the South Hams.
The risks of an invasive non-native species in the Avon Estuary are relatively low owing to the regular flushing of the estuary by freshwater but with increases in the number of people and craft using the estuary for recreational purposes, the danger is still present. Please be vigilant and take any relevant precautions, as advised in the plan.
The effects of invasion by Spartina or cord grass in the Avon Estuary after artificial introduction by Man are all too evident in the steady accumulation of silt and mud. Multiplication of the Pacific Oyster outside of the farmed racks in our estuary is prevented by limiting the externally-sourced juveniles to triploid (infertile) individuals.
