CONTROVERSIAL plans to build a cluster of houses in Pilton have been submitted to North Devon Council.
Devonshire Homes hopes to build 43 homes at Westaway Plain if plans are approved.
The development could consist of a mixture of two to four bed houses as well as 12 affordable homes.
People who live near the proposed site were concerned additional houses would cause extra traffic and create flood risk problems.
Lynboro Road resident Jeremy Bishop, previously told the Journal about his concerns of the Westaway Plain proposal.
He said: “There are so many things wrong with the site. The flood defences won’t be adequate and there’s just so much more.”
Steve Russell, interim managing director of Devonshire Homes said after public consultations the layout of the developed was changed.
He said: “We have ensured that the development will be well landscaped so that it is not visually imposing from the north and Westaway Plain where the existing trees are being retained.”
Mr Russell also said a footpath within the site which will lead into Westaway Plain and across to the A39 trunk road for access to the hospital were included in the plans.
Devonshire Homes is currently developing a site at Rumsam Meadows, Barnstaple and has completed a scheme in Northam.
The planning application was validated by North Devon District Council and should be determined in the next 13 weeks.
