Introduction

Persimmon Homes has acquired the land at Inglewood, Brixham Road, Paignton which was granted outline planning permission in April 2021. The outline planning permission confirms that this site is suitable for residential development and Persimmon Homes are taking this forward to the detailed planning stage. As part of this process, we are seeking the views of the local community to help shape and inform the final development proposals which will be submitted to Torbay Council.

The proposed development will consist of 373 new homes, providing a range of house types and sizes, including bungalows and affordable homes. The development scheme will deliver 2,3 & 4 bed houses and 1 & 2 bed flats ranging from 1-3 stories, but typically 2 stories. Further included as part of the development will be a 2 form primary school (to reduce strain on White Rock school to the North), public open space, pub, transport network and improvements and community areas, including orchards and allotments. Access is also provided to the wider countryside and the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beyond the site.

Proposed Masterplan

Street Scene Proposals

Site Design

Our vision is To create a place of substantial quality, diversity, distinctiveness and community that balances modern living and nature; complementing a unique developing settlement. The proposed development layout is subdivided into x4 individual ‘character areas’, being Orchards, Quarry’s edge, The Walks and Nords Village. Each character area has a varied blend of storey height, density, materials, landscaping and boundary treatment, to differentiate each area from the next; providing unique identities. Pedestrian movement, connectivity and interaction is at the forefront of the detailed design, with each character area containing integrated spaces for social interaction, play and exercise for all ages.

Ecology

In relation to the ecology pastureland is provided beyond the development for cattle grazing as well as areas for Cirl Buntings. A biodiversity net gain is going to be provided within the development with more green open space provided, allotments, community orchard, defunct hedgerows enhanced for birds, pastureland provided outside the development for Cirl Buntings and other wildlife and native tree planting. Wildlife boxes such as bat boxes for the Greater Horseshoe Bats will also be provided. Most hedgerows will also be protected and kept the same with the ones that are removed being replaced with higher quality ones. Off-site ecological mitigation planting and additional hedgebanks will be created.

Environmental

Responsible sourcing through the supply chain sustainability school (SCSS), Timber to come from sustainability managed forests, Electric vehicle charging points, Management of construction waste and air quality, PV technology.

Transport

A new roundabout is being implemented on Brixham Road to improve traffic flow on Brixham Road and provide access to Inglewood. The transport network within the development runs smoothly with walking and cycling routes, bus routes and homezone areas.

Transport changes include improvements to Windy Corner, 4 arm Roundabout on Brixham Road into the development and widening and lowering the road to increase the visibility spray.

Landscaping

Landscaping is a key aspect for the development. 2 LEAPS will be provided alongside 1 NEAP. The houses within the development will have the look of houses within the vicinity including Galmpton, White Rock, Churston, Goodrington and Waddeton. Landscape, views and ecological enhancement / mitigation are the backbone of the masterplan in this unique edge location and its relationship with the wider countryside. Views into and out of the development will be embraced with a key point towards the Nords and AONB beyond. Off site contributions to tree planting in the local area are to be made. Site has been assessed and is free of contamination. Does have large volumes of heritage interest though.

Public Open Space

Promoting the importance of community with allotments to encourage food growing, LEAP and NEAP areas for families and large quantities of green open space and green infrastructure for people to enjoy. Habitat creation will encourage ecology to the area which will also be able to be enjoyed by couples and families alike.

Green Infrastructure

An attenuation pond is also being provided. A variety of typologies, characters and functions. SUD design technologies, enhancement and expansion of existing blue network, integration with landscape and ecology to create Green-Blue infrastructure.

Responsible sourcing through the supply chain sustainability school (SCSS), Timber to come from sustainability managed forests, Electric vehicle charging points, Management of construction waste and air quality, PV technology.
