This well located parcel of prime development land fronts the main Exeter Road on the northern edge of the built up area of Dawlish. Access will be achieved by a new connection to the existing roundabout serving Sainsbury's. The land extends to approximately 11.25 hectares (27.80 acres) and is generally gently south sloping and comprises a mix of open grassland and a number of buildings proposed to be demolished as part of the development.
The land forms part of the larger DA2 allocation in the adopted local plan which requires an urban extension with a target of 25% affordable housing and a master plan has been approved which shows the land offered for sale as the gateway and principal access route.
The town offers a variety of amenities including good shopping facilities with a new Sainsbury's supermarket on the north eastern fringe, primary and secondary schools, churches and public library. The local beaches are also a major attraction including those at nearby Dawlish Warren. There is a leisure centre with active local football, hockey and cricket clubs and activities in the area include bowls, tennis and walking. Fishing and sailing is available on both the Exe and the Teign Estuaries and there are golf clubs at both Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren.
Dawlish is located on the main London to Penzance railway line, the Cathedral City of Exeter is located approximately 12 miles to the north via the A379 which offers a comprehensive range of services and facilities together with the M5 & A30 connections and Exeter International Airport.
The site benefits from a grant of outline planning permission for up to 200 dwellings, 3 hectares of employment land including a 64 bed care home, highway works, demolition works to ancillary healthcare buildings, incidental and equipped open space including temporary sangs.
