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.’

Application to Name and Number a New St – Ref: 469752
The street naming process:
This is a statutory function of the Council and the legal procedure is governed by clauses in the Public Health Act of 1925 as follows:
The developer of the site proposes a name initially.
The local Ward Member(s), Parish or Town Council and the Royal Mail are consulted, in the form of this letter.
Any objections to the developer’s name must be fully substantiated and made within a strict time-scale.
If objections are received, the appropriate Council Committee will be responsible for considering any viable alternative names arising from the consultation, and deciding which name is to be approved.
The developer has a right of appeal to the Magistrates Court against a Council objection to his preferred name and the Magistrates will make the final decision if there is failure to agree at an earlier stage.
A process that goes to appeal will result in additional cost to the Council and delay for new residents.
The developer has proposed the following name for the development: –
If no response to this letter is received within 21 days it will be assumed that you have no objections to the developer’s proposed names being adopted by the Council.

Tel: 01803 861234
Application No.: 4097/16/OPA Date Received: 21 December 2016
Proposal: READVERTISEMENT (Amendments to detail of proposed new access and road
layout) Outline application with some matters reserved for residential development of circa 8 dwellings, open space and associated infrastructure with all matters reserved except for means of access (and associated off-site highway works)
Location: Proposed Development Site At Sx 663 471, St Anns Chapel, Bigbury, Devon
Dated 11th July 2017:- The South Hams District Council hereby REFUSE permission to carry out the development – described above for the following reason(s):
1. The proposed development is likely to generate an increase in pedestrian traffic on
highways lacking adequate footways and also lacking adequate visibility at the junction
of the C252 and the B3392 with consequent additional danger to all users of the road
contrary to paragraph 32 of the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy DP7 of the
South Hams Local Development Framework and Policy DEV 31 of the emerging
Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan.
2. Having regard to the new road access points, the provision of a new relocated and
wider highway and the resulting loss of Devon Hedgebanks, the proposal will fail to
conserve the landscape and scenic beauty in this part of the South Devon Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty contrary to paragraph 115 of the NPPF, Policies CS9 and
DP2 of the South Hams Local Development Framework and Policies SPT11, DEV24
and DEV27 of the emerging Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan.
