Greenham Reach Planning Documentation

The Ecological Land Co-operative (ELC) applied to Mid Devon District Council for planning permission for three new affordable residential smallholdings "Plot C", "Plot A" and "Plot B", (ref: 11/02007/MFUL), ref:12/00045/MFUL and ref:12/00107/MFUL). Together the three applications form a proposal for a cluster of three low impact and affordable smallholdings - for new entrants to ecological agriculture.

The planning officer, Alison Fish, recommended approval but the Planning Committee refused permission (see News and Events). We then appealed the Committee's decision and were granted permission at appeal.

In each of the three applications we sought a temporary permission for an agricultural worker’s dwelling. With each application we also sought permission for the following shared facilities and infrastructure: timber barn with PV array and rainwater collection; biological waste water treatment system; improved access; and internal pathways of grass paving. On Plot C we were also seeking permission for a small wooden poultry hatchery/brooder (18m2) and on Plot A for a small greenhouse (24m2).

Our scheme attracted a great deal of support including that of:
