Graphic illustrating the major projects planned in and around CullomptonMid Devon District Council has opened a public consultation as it looks to secure a prosperous future for the town.

From today, the public will be able to comment on the proposed Cullompton Masterplan and Delivery Plan, which forms the basis for the regeneration of the town; enhancing the town’s economic prospects and providing a clear strategy to ensure the town meets its full potential as an attractive and thriving Mid Devon town.

In addition to submitting written comments, the public can also attend drop in events staged throughout the town during the eight week consultation period.

Councillor Graeme Barnell, Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration said:

“This consultation event provides a great opportunity for interested individuals, groups and organisations to make their comments known on how they would like to see Cullompton Town Centre in the future. This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to influence how the future of Cullompton will look.’’

The public consultation runs from 25 February until 15 April 2020, with four drop-in events being held, staffed by officers who will be able to answer any queries.

The events will be held on:

  • Wednesday 4 March, Cullompton Town Hall, 1 High Street, Cullompton, 10:00am to 2:00pm
  • Friday 13 March, foyer of Tesco, Station Road, Cullompton, 2.30pm to 6:00pm
  • Saturday 14 March, Farmers Market, Bull Ring, Cullompton, 9.30am to 2.30pm
  • Monday 16 March, Hayridge Centre, 1 Exeter Hill, Cullompton, 4:00pm to 7:00pm

 

A summary of the presentation boards will be available throughout the eight week period in the reception at Cullompton Town Hall and the Hayridge Centre, Cullompton during normal working hours.

The masterplan is being produced in the full knowledge of the major projects planned in and around Cullompton, including:

  • North west Cullompton urban extension
  • New homes allocated to the east of the town
  • The proposed Culm Garden Village with up to 5,000 new homes, new jobs, schools and local centre
  • A Heritage Action Zone which will see investment into Cullompton’s historic high street, and
  • Potential for the reopening of Cullompton railway station.
