Development of Brixham Pontins site rejected

Plans for 200 new houses and a care home on the site of a former holiday camp in south Devon have been rejected.

Northern Trust had applied to develop the former Pontins site in Wall Park Road, Brixham.

But an independent planning inspector ruled that the plan would have a significant impact on an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

He concluded that the loss of the site for tourism would be contrary to the area's Local Plan, Torbay Council said.
