Atmos is a community-led project to redevelop a derelict industrial site (the Dairy Crest site next to Totnes rail station) for homes and businesses in Totnes. The plans show 99 homes (62 of which will be genuinely affordable for the community and 37 will be for older people), and enterprise and work space providing employment for at the very least 160 people plus services and amenities to support the Atmos Totnes and the community of Totnes. A new route to planning has been used – the Community Right to Build Order. In preparing for this route there were over 4,500 meaningful contributions into the design process from the community and a professional design team has supported in meeting the design needs within the substantial constraints of the site itself. It was approved in a historic community referendum in November 2016. TCDS are currently working to ensure the project goes ahead after it was purchased in murky circumstances by a private developer. To see how it is intended that Atmos will be delivered, see our Delivery Plan here.
