Mid Devon District Council is reviewing the Local Plan for development in Mid Devon over the next 15-20 years, including the Core Strategy, the Allocations and Infrastructure Development Plan Document and Development Management Policies.
Junction 27 Update
Full Council on 22nd September 2016 voted to allocate land at Junction 27 of the M5 for leisure, tourism and retail as part of the Local Plan Review. Details of the Council meeting can be found here. The Local Plan Review, with the inclusion land at Junction 27, will be considered by Councillors in November 2016 for a further period of consultation anticipated January – February 2017 before the expected submission of the Local Plan Review to the planning inspectorate in March 2017 for examination.
Future Local Plan e-updates
To keep you up to date in an efficient manner we intend to rely more heavily on e-mails in the future. This will make an important contribution to making the best use of public funds and will also have environmental benefits of reducing paper usage. For more information and latest planning news read the January 2016 planning newsletter here.
The new LDS sets in place an updated timescale for the review of the Core Strategy and the Allocations and Infrastructure Development Plan Document (AIDPD, to form one overall Local Plan).
