New and affordable homes for Beer

East Devon District Council has approved Clinton Devon Estates’ planning application to build 30 new homes for people in the seaside village of Beer, 12 of which will be designated affordable. 

The Development Management Committee voted unanimously to grant outline planning consent at a meeting on May 1st 2019 after hearing that the proposals were strongly supported by the local community. 

The site at Short Furlong had been allocated for housing in Beer’s Neighbourhood Plan which received support from 90% of voters in a local referendum held at the end of 2018.   

A reserved matters application will be submitted later this year.

We are trustees for life of the countryside

– 22nd Baron Clinton, 2002

Do what you can to elevate your profession. It is an honourable one

– Robert Lipscomb, Steward 1865 – 1892

Handing over something more valuable than we have today,

– Estates ethos

to set out against the Scots, the King’s enemies and rebels

– Instructions given by Edward 1 to John de Clinton on 8th April 1298, prior to him leading the Royal army to victory at the Battle of Falkirk. As a direct result the Clinton Barony was formed on 22nd July 1299

But our power for good or evil in this world’s affairs in a countryside is enormous

– Robert Lipscomb, Steward 1865 – 1892
