The developer at Knowle would like to build over double the number of dwellings as stipulated in the Local Plan - even after the latest 'tweaking':
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project >>> Pegasus plans in full >>> "They are planning over 120 dwellings on the site, whereas the emerging Local Plan proposes only 50."
This is comment just received from a correspondent:
I gather that Pegasus are saying that 50 units at Knowle are those mentioned by the inspector and the other 60 are windfalls. There is a conversation on Sidmouth Herald Streetlife that makes this point.
The government says:
Windfall sites: Sites which have not been specifically identified as available in the Local Plan process. They normally comprise previously-developed sites that have unexpectedly become available.
This was identified in the Local Plan and wasn't unexpected ...
Here is that conversation from Streetlife:
