Want to know a little bit more…
This questionnaire is largely formed on your comments from our launch events and will help us understand what is most important to you and what our Neighbourhood Plan should focus upon.
It is important to make clear that a ‘Neighbourhood Plan’ has a focus on land use and development – and is not to be confused with our ‘Parish Plan’ which identifies all manner of wider local issues which we have already achieved or are still working towards.
Our Neighbourhood Plan will set out a vision for what the Parish should be like to live and work in over the next fifteen years and how that vision can be achieved. The process of making our Plan will include a series of consultations, in which we will try and listen to everyone in our community.
Our Plan needs to conform to strategic local and national policies but can enable us to put in place our own detailed local planning policies relating to infrastructure, economic, housing and other development where the community thinks it is necessary or beneficial to do so. Our plan will go before an independent examiner, and then be subject to a referendum in our Parish where, under the regulations in the Localism Act 2011, over 50% of those voting must be in favour of the Plan. Once approved it will form part of the Statutory Development Plan for the area. To read more http://mycommunityrights.org.uk/neighbourhood-planning/
You can see from this, just how important it is that you make your views known so that they can be reflected in the final document.
The questionnaire is straightforward and self-explanatory, but If you encounter any difficulties, or require more information about our Parish Neighbourhood Plan process or to join our steering group, please contact the Parish Clerk: Tracey Bell email; firstname.lastname@example.org tel; 01823 681138
Thank you for taking the time to USE YOUR VOICE & HAVE YOUR SAY!
Publication of the East Devon Local Plan 2006-2026 East Devon District Council has prepared its Local Plan
and proposes to submit it to the Secretary of State under Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local
Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. The local plan sets out strategic policy for development and development management policies across East Devon. It includes the full suite of policies for the seven main towns of the District (Axminster, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth, Honiton, Ottery St. Mary, Seaton and Sidmouth) and the ‘West End’ and countryside areas. We will be doing further work on planning for our smaller settlements through a separate village Development Plan Document.
The proposed submission document, a statement of representation procedure and other documents in support of the plan are available to view and download from the Council’s website at: http://www.eastdevon.gov.uk/localplan
The plan is also available for inspection during normal opening hours at: East Devon District Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, EX10 8HL and at public libraries in East Devon.
Paper copies of the plan (black and white text book and colour maps booklet) can also be purchased at a cost of £5 plus £2.50 postage and packaging. And we will be sending paper copies free of charge to town and parish Councils in East Devon.
