South Hams District Council approves Sherford

07 December 2011

South Hams planners today resolved to approve the Sherford planning agreement which is an important part of the final stages of the outline planning process for Sherford. Plymouth City Council planners are expected to consider the planning agreement early in 2012.

In 2009 both local authorities resolved to grant planning permission for Sherford subject to, amongst other things, the completion of a Section 106 Agreement.

The agreement approved today by South Hams and due to be considered by Plymouth City Council follows extensive discussions with the planning authorities and consultation with stakeholder groups and members of the public over several years.

James Koe, partner at Red Tree, said: "The approval of the terms of the planning agreement is a key step in delivering the vision for Sherford and the benefits it will bring in terms of new affordable and market homes, thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of economic investment in the South Hams and Plymouth."

"We welcome the decision by South Hams planners and look forward to a decision regarding the planning agreement by Plymouth City Council early next year. Should the Plymouth committee decide to approve the Section 106 Agreement, Sherford will then rapidly move on to its construction phase and we would expect to start work on site during 2012."
