What's Planned

south hams district council planning

Plans for the revival of Baltic Wharf – currently a 13-acre brownfield site on the River Dart in Totnes – have now been submitted to South Hams District Council for outline planning permission. The application also makes available for public recreation some 12 acres of greenfield land beside the brownfield area.

The masterplan is based on proposals which found strong support when viewed by hundreds of local people at consultation events in Totnes in May 2008.

The final plans take into account feedback from the consultation and the worsening economic climate. However, like the original scheme, they have managed to maintain over 400 jobs and up to 90 affordable homes. Given we are in the worst recession in six decades, this is no mean feat!

The following documents accompany the planning application:
