Proposed Submission Consultation - what happened

A third stage of consultation on the Local Plan Review was held 9 Feb - 27 April.

The Local Plan Review will guide development in the district over the next 20 years and is reaching the final stages in its preparation and development. It aims to make sure that new homes, jobs and services required by communities are located in the most sustainable places. It will also help deliver the infrastructure, facilities and other development needed to make this possible.

Two previous consultations were held on the Local Plan Review. The first was held in Jul - Aug 2013 on the scope of the new Local Plan which set out the broad issues facing the district and invited people to put forward ideas and aspirations for how Mid Devon should develop over the coming years. Following this, a second consultation was held in Jan - Mar 2014 which invited people to look at the possible options available to meet the aspirations identified following the first consultation.

This consultation invites people to provide comments on the Local Plan Review Proposed Submission. Any representations at this stage will be submitted to the Secretary of State along with the Local Plan and other relevant documents. An independent inspector will then hold an examination on the Local Plan which will take into account public and other opinion when judging whether the plan is sound.

The Local Plan Review Proposed Submission document can be downloaded below.

The Council has also prepared a Sustainability Appraisal publication report and welcomes comments on this.

Proposed Submission (incorporating proposed modifications) Consultation 2017

 

Consultation on the Local Plan Review Proposed Submission (incorporating proposed modifications) took place from 3 January – 14 February 2017.

The Local Plan Review will guide development in the district over the next 20 years and is reaching the final stages in its preparation and development. It aims to make sure that new homes, jobs and services required by communities are located in the most sustainable places. It will also help deliver the infrastructure, facilities and other developments needed to make this possible.

Three previous consultations were held on the Local Plan Review. The first was held in July – August 2013 on the scope of the new Local Plan which set out the broad issues facing the district and invited people to put forward ideas and aspirations for how Mid Devon should develop over the coming years. Following this, an options consultation was held in January – March 2014 which invited people to look at the possible options available to meet the aspirations identified following the first consultation.

Consultation on the Local Plan Review Proposed Submission document was held February – April 2015 . At that time, it was intended that once these comments had been considered, the Local Plan would have been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate later that year. However, following the consultation the need for additional technical work was identified in order to ensure that the evidence base would be more robust prior to submission. Since the spring 2015 consultation there have also been changes to national guidance and the supporting local plan evidence base which have led to the need for additional modifications. The plan has also been updated to reflect the Full Council decision taken on 22 September 2016 to propose an allocation of land at Junction 27 of the M5 for high quality tourism, leisure, retail and associated additional housing.

This consultation invited people to provide comments on the proposed modifications to the Local Plan Review Proposed Submission document. The 1367 comments received have been reviewed by the Council and have been sent to the Planning Inspectorate together with the plan and associated documentation. Click here for more information.
