Decision Maker: Managing Director

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To approve allocation of an additional £4,850,000 from the Community Infrastructure Levy towards delivery of the A382 pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular link road improvements between Newton Abbot and Drumbridges roundabout.

It is proposed to make this contribution in exchange for £4,850,000 funding from Devon County Council that will be provided from recovered Housing Infrastructure Fund receipts at South West Exeter.

An urgent decision on this matter is required in order that Devon County Council and the Department of Transport have sufficient time and certainty with which to approve the total funding package for the A382 improvements. It is understood that the relevant DfT committee are due to meet during July 2024. Before then, Devon County Council require certainty with which to confirm and put forward the proposed arrangements. A Teignbridge District Council decision is therefore required in June 2024.


(1) Approve a contribution of £4,850,000 towards the A382 road improvements between Newton Abbot and Drumbridges roundabout;

(2) Receive £4,850,000 (plus index) from Devon County Council to be spent on infrastructure priorities needed to support development in Teignbridge; and

(3) Delegate authority to the Head of Place and Commercial Services to complete a funding agreement with Devon County Council associated with the contributions and take such other actions as may be necessary to make and receive the payments.
