The Parish of Stokenham, bounded by the black line on the map, covers the whole of the southern half of Start Bay, from Slapton Sands to Start Point and on to Lannacombe Beach. It encompasses the villages of Torcross, Beesands, Hallsands, Kellaton, Kernborough, Dunstone, Beeson and Chillington, as well as Stokenham itself, covers an area of some 20.6 square kilometres, and has a population of approximately 2,000.
The seven larger settlements and many smaller hamlets and farms are connected by miles of narrow country lanes, byways, bridleways and footpaths. The main arterial route in and out of the parish is the A379, which runs north to Dartmouth and west to Kingsbridge. This route is serviced by the First Western National Bus Company, with connections available to Plymouth (change for Derriford Hospital), Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes (our nearest main line railway station) and Exeter. The parish also enjoys the service of The Coleridge Bus, a community bus providing weekly runs from outlying areas to Kingsbridge. There are airports at Plymouth and Exeter.
RE: planning application 3193/18/ARM, the proposed development of 64 dwellings, on land to the rear of Green Park Way, Chillington, TQ7 2HY, following grant of Outline Consent 0771/16/OPA
This application will be considered at a meeting of the Development Management Committee on Wednesday, 19 June, in the Council Chambers at Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes, TQ9 5NE. The meeting is due to start at 11.30am.
Stokenham Parish Council, who will speak against the application, believes that this may be the last opportunity residents have to voice their opinion on the proposed development. The meeting is open to the public and all those who are interested in the matter are invited to attend.
