Fully support - Members are extremely supportive of the application due to the fact it will be a community facility as well as serving as the church. It will not be intrusive in the overall scheme and it will cater for disabled users as well as abled users. There will be an archaeological dig as required by the Diocese. There is also urgency as the builder is in the process of completing the development next to the church yard and is engaged for this contract.

See listing description and information on file. St Michael & All Angels Church which is listed Grade II*. There are also a number of other listed headstones etc within the churchyard itself, including the closest to the proposed location of the new WC, a 1759 headstone which is listed Grade II.


This application has been the subject of pre-application discussions under 15/0019/PREAPP and with the DAC and Historic England.

There is no objection in principle to the provision of a WC in this location, although the further consideration as to whether some storage could be incorporated into the structure to ensure that any future needs for a shed are minimised does not appear to have been taken on board. The Heritage Statement is minimal and does not assess the existing structure in any detail. However, Devon County Council Archaeology Team have asked for a Condition relating to Archaeology should the permission be forthcoming.



o Before any work is undertaken to remove the existing structure, the applicant shall take such steps and carry out such works as shall, during the process of the works permitted by this consent, secure the safety and the stability of the site which is to be retained. Such steps and works shall, where necessary, include measures as follows:-

a) to strengthen any wall or vertical surface;
b) to support any wall, roof or horizontal surface;
c) to provide protection for the site against the weather during the progress of the works.

o No works shall commence until the following details and specification have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority:

- Sample of new bricks including mortar colour and specification and bond type.
- Sample of stone including mortar colour and specification and coursing

All stonework/brickwork and pointing shall be carried out using a lime based mix, the specification of which shall be approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The colour, texture, type of bond and joint, and finish shall be agreed and a small trial area shall be prepared in a non-prominent location for inspection and approval by the Local Planning Authority prior to commencement of the works.
