Teignbridge District Council has thrown out a planning application for Dawlish's Old Vicarage over a lack of information and recent contact with the applicant.

The Grade II listed property on Weech Road, which has been slowly falling apart over several decades, had been stuck in limbo for almost two and a half years before the application for planning permission was "disposed of".

The plans would have demolished parts of the Old Vicarage and restored others.

They were opposed by Historic England, the organisation responsible for listing properties, as it wanted to protect the cob of the main building.

A Teignbridge District Council spokesperson said: "We have disposed of the application for listed building consent as we had not received the information necessary for it to be considered and we had had no recent contact with the applicant. 

"We would welcome the submission of a fully detailed planning application that respects the December 2019 inspector's decision and the listed building status of the property."

Nub News contacted the applicant, John Farrell, for comment but he did not respond by the time of publication.
