Call for Sites

Call for sites, 1 October 2020 to 30 April 2021

The Paignton Neighbourhood Plan (PNP), adopted last year, is being reviewed and refreshed at this time. We are currently undertaking a call for sites where we are asking local land owners to put their sites forward for potential allocation for development in the PNP. Site allocation can offer many benefits to land owners and developers: an allocated site will have a streamlined planning process and should offer lower risk than an unallocated site.

The Paignton Neighbourhood Forum (PNF) will be gathering evidence on local housing need in the coming months. This criteria will be used by the Steering Group to assess the opportunities that individual sites may provide to meet local housing need. Sites that offer opportunities to improve Paignton, in line with the priorities and policies of the community, as presented in the Plan will be particularly important to the PNP and the PNF will seek to work closely with landowners to agree a comprehensive approach to site redevelopment.

We are also considering commercial land. If a case can be made that commercial sites are deliverable, the PNP may allocate sites to promote local employment.

In both cases, we especially welcome brownfield sites to enable needed development to occur without depleting our limited green spaces.

The assessment criteria are being developed at this time.

Note: If you have previously notified us of your site, we would appreciate it if you could fill in the form to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information. 

If you would like to put a site forward for possible allocation, you will need to fill in an application form, which can be completed online here. Please complete one form per site.
