As part of the Torquay Town Strategy, Torbay Council required a significant amount of housing development and employment provision to the north of the town. The area of Edginswell was identified as a suitable area for future development which was well linked to the new South Devon Link Road. LL working with ICube developed a Masterplan for a new Urban Village to accommodate circa 600 homes, care village, a new primary school, employment uses and a small amount of retail with good links to the wider rail and road network and with good links into the existing settlement. The aim of the development was to set a bench mark for future development in the town.
The strategy and Masterplan was adopted by the Council in 2015 and LL are working with developers to bring the site forward to an Outline Application in 2016.
