Planning Approval for a new timber lodge at Chelfham: January 2021

We are pleased to announce that our submitted planning application has been approved by North Devon Council, allowing us to demolish the existing disused timber lodge which is in a poor state of repair. A new single-storey timber lodge will be built in its place, providing the railway with an insulated building offering modern overnight accommodation facilities.

Our thanks to L&B Member Ric Auger for not only producing the plans/drawings, but also dealing with all aspects of the planning application itself.

The application site is located within woodland on a hillside above the restored station at our Chelfham Station and is accessed by a narrow path leading from the access road to the station.
