What's been done previously
There were two stages of consultation in 2011. The earlier drafts of the documents can be viewed below. It was originally intended that the Council produce a Green Infrastructure Strategy as a Supplementary Planning Document, but planning for green infrastructure is now expected to be incorporated within a new Open Space and Play Area Strategy and the Mid Devon Local Plan.
