Full description

Morgan, D., 1993, Planning and Listed Building Consent for the Retrospective Demolition of Rear Extension at No 10, Refurbishment of No 12 East Street & Erection of Offices and Flats at Powderham Road, East Street & Tudor Road, Newton Abbot (Correspondence). SDV351939.

Numbers 1-5 Powderham Road were considered to be a valued group of buildings which, in their form, paid regard to the buildings on East Street and also to the rising topography of Powderham Road. There was a readable order of scale from the modest No. 1 adjoining 10 East Street, through the intermediary No. 3 to the fully articulared villas of nos 5-7, the form of which is the model for the main Italianate villas in Powderham Road. It is suggested that the proposed redevelopment has a over-bearing effect on the adjacent listed building and that the elevation be revised to reflect the graduation of the previous arrangment.


Cotswold Archaeology, 2003, 5 Powderham Road, Newton Abbot: Archaeological Evaluation (Report - Evaluation). SDV338226.

Archaeological evaluation undertaken on a plot of land at 5 Powderham Road in 2003 prior to residential development. The only archaeological deposits uncovered during an archaeological evaluation were remains of late post-medieval and modern structures as depicted on 19th century maps. Remaining structural evidence survived in the form of walls, a concrete floor and a modern mounting for a machine. Associated finds included glass fragments and 19th/20th century pottery sherds. A lack of substantial deposits suggests that the site has been previously levelled. Despite proximity to documented areas of medieval activity, no medieval or early post-medieval structures were revealed on this site in this evaluation although it has been suggested that much of this area was open at this time and used as a market place.

Powderham Court is three storeys high at its lower, East Street end, thus not really reflecting the graduation of the street and former buildings as mentioned by Morgan.
