Homepage > Our Proposal

Morrish Homes’ project team believe that this site has the potential to make a positive contribution to housing delivery in West Hill, responding to future housing need in the village and wider East Devon.


Local plan review

The team is participating in East Devon District Council’s Local Plan Review, which has only just started and will determine the housing requirements across the district. In January 2021 the Council issued a Call for Sites, which is now closed, and will provide a good overview of where in the district the sites are that may be available for housing and employment land. The Council will assess all sites that have been proposed and will publish the results in a HELAA (Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment), setting out the sites’ technical suitability, which is expected towards the end of 2021. The Council aims to adopt the emerging Local Plan in 2023.


High-level principles of the development

On 10 September 2021 we held an early-stage public exhibition where draft ideas for the site have been discussed with the local community. Members of the public asked questions and provided valuable feedback. The project team will consider all responses received and would like to thank members of the community for their interest. To have a look at the information boards as presented at the event, please click here.

There are a number of high-level principles that we are working from and that we would like to share with you:

  • We think that a relatively low-density housing development would be suitable for a site like this, at the edge of the village and adjacent to existing housing
  • There are considerable opportunities to maintain and strengthen hedges and trees around the site, for screening and biodiversity purposes
  • Vehicular, pedestrian and cycle access are to be taken from Oak Road
