OPPOSITION is growing against plans for 120 new homes in Pinhoe.
Residents say they feel that Pinhoe's green spaces are disappearing, with Redrow currently building 250 homes in Harrington Lane and permission granted for 380 homes at the former Pinhoe Quarry.
The new homes would be at Home Farm and built on either side of Church Hill, with 96 on one side and 20 on the other.
Residents against the latest development have organised a meeting for October 21 to decide how best they can fight the plans.
Linda Marchant, who has lived in Church Hill for 25 years, said: "I am not against such a development at my back door, but I think 96 homes here is too many, and you have to think of the quality of life of people living in Pinhoe.
"Church Hill is a single track lane. I have spoken to the developers and they had a barking suggestion of putting traffic lights in Church Hill.
"They also assume children from the development will walk to school, but Pinhoe school is already full."
Twenty of the proposed homes would be on the other side of Church Hill, with access through Bickleigh Close which is currently a cul-de-sac.
Bickleigh Close resident Debbie Jones is also not opposed to the houses but is concerned about the effect it is going to have on traffic. Mrs Jones said: "I know homes have to be built but 20 homes could mean 40 vehicles trying to get out into Harrington Lane just across from the school."
Resident Carol Ireland has views of the field where the homes are to be built and said: "All we have seen for the past 21 years are black cows.
"They have said they will be building an 'open space buffer' so we won't be over-looked but it is such a shame."
