Plans to build a 30-home development in Beer have been given the green light.

The homes will be built on land adjacent to Short Furlong.

The sloped site is 0.9 hectares and is adjacent to the established built-up area of Beer to the west of the settlement.

A design and access statement for the planning application, submitted by Clinton Devon Estates, said: “All houses are two to three storeys in height and are designed to step up or down the slope to accommodate levels.

“The proposed vehicular point of access off the existing Short Furlong has been identified on the eastern boundary of the site.

The document said the development would bring forward ‘much needed’ and affordable housing which will increase ‘viability’ of the village.
