Land to the east of Ivybridge is allocated for a residential led mixed-use development.  Provision is made for in the order of 540 new homes and 4,600 sq m of employment space (Use Classes B1).  Development should provide for the following:

  1. Appropriate local facilities to support new residents and to enhance the sustainability of the local area, including local convenience retailing facilities of a scale and format where it can be demonstrated that there will be no significant adverse impact on the existing town centre.
  2. The continued and enhanced operation of the railway station and associated park and ride, including high quality design and layout which maximises opportunities for natural surveillance.
  3. A landscape strategy which addresses the site’s scale and prominence and the edges of the development, and to mitigate any adverse visual impact on Dartmoor National Park.
  4. The retention of Ivybridge Rugby Club, with any reordering of land-uses only acceptable if it is beneficial to the operation of the club.
  5. A quality form of development which integrates with the existing housing, and provides a design and density that is not prominent when viewed from the Dartmoor National Park. 
  6. Safe and attractive pedestrian and cycle connections for residents to access local facilities and services, including the station and local schools.
  7. An appropriate strategy to mitigate for any impact on the Western Road AQMA, including proportionate contributions as appropriate to any relevant Air Quality Action Plan and traffic management schemes.
  8. A site wide Sustainable Drainage Strategy to ensure that drainage requirements can be met on site and are designed to deliver landscape, biodiversity and amenity benefits.
