An opportunity for public consultation on the findings of the independent review and proposed amendments to the Sustainability Appraisal will take place between 28th February and 11th April 2018.

Update (14 September 2017)

The Planning Inspector postponed the first Examination Hearings due to take place on the 26 and 27 September at the request of Mid Devon District Council.

Having reviewed the statements received by Examination Hearing participants and having taken legal advice, Mid Devon District Council requested an adjournment of the Local Plan Hearings. This adjournment provided the opportunity for the council to commission an independent report by consultants LUC to review the Sustainability Appraisal of proposed modifications made to Mid Devon Local Plan Review.

These Inspector-led hearings were to consider the proposed leisure, tourism and retail allocation at Junction 27 of the M5 motorway (policy J27) and the housing sites at Higher Town, Sampford Peverell (policy SP2) and at Blundell’s Road, Tiverton (policy TIV16).


Mid Devon Council submitted the Local Plan Review 2013 - 2033 to the Planning Inspectorate on 31 March 2017, for examination into the legal compliance and soundness of the Plan.

The Secretary of State has appointed Mr Paul Griffiths BSc (Hons) BArch IHBC to conduct the examination and to report to the Council in due course.
