Welcome to our community website where you can learn more about our proposals for new homes on Land at Little Cotton Farm, Dartmouth.

Baker Estates acquired the site in 2018 and has been working hard since then to bring forward proposals for a residential-led, mixed-use development.

Outline consent for Phase 1 (up to 240 homes, plus employment land, a local centre, public open space and access off Townstal Road) was granted on appeal in March 2016. South Hams District Council (SHDC) then resolved to grant outline permission for Phase 2, allowing for a further 210 homes, in November 2018.

Additionally, the site is allocated in the Plymouth & South West Devon Joint Local Plan.

We held a public exhibition on 30th March at which we displayed our detailed plans for Phase 1; these have now been submitted to SHDC as a reserved matters application. We also set out our approach to Phase 2 and sought feedback. The exhibition material can be viewed here.


We will look to incorporate feedback where possible and appropriate.
