An overview of the latest plans for this important area in Pinhoe

Planning permission for this site was granted in 2012 and included consent for up to 380 homes with 2 highway access points.

Landscaping to the site has been completed, including the reveal of the geology: the Crackington Formation rock face. The site is a Regionally Important Geological Site (RIGS) and was acquired by Galliford Try Partnerships, with LiveWest and Linden Homes.

There is no information on the protection of the surrounding wildlife areas, or the drainage structure.
