The application site is located on the eastern edge of the built up area of Barnstaple. It has a site area of about 4.20 hectares (10.38 acres) and currently consists of pasture land. The site lies c. 1 km from Barnstaple town centre.
At its western end the site adjoins North Road, part of the A39, which is the principal road running broadly east to west on or close to the north Somerset and Devon coast. The sole proposed access to the site is from North Road. To the north lies the North Devon District Hospital, the largest facility in this part of the County.
The eastern boundary has superb views to open countryside, and the southern boundary adjoins a housing development at the western end and open land at the eastern end. Higher Raleigh Road runs east west 50 metres or so south of the site; to the south of this lies the floodplain on the north bank of the River Yeo.
The site slopes from north to south. The permitted development lies either side of a linear road to the north of the site, where it is at its flattest. The land to the south of the site is proposed for public open space and attenuation.
The site is held Freehold by Homes England under title no. DN692029
