Review of Town and Parishes in Mid Devon 

Mid Devon District Council is about to commence a community governance review. The review will last approximately one year, from November 2021, and any changes will come into effect for the 2023 all-out elections.  Further details.

A Neighbourhood Plan for Willand

Willand Parish Council has applied to designate the parish of Willand as an area for a Neighbourhood Plan. This is the sixth application Mid Devon District Council has received for a neighbourhood planning designation since the Localism Act (2011) gave local communities the power to produce plans for their own areas.

A neighbourhood plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development and growth of an area. It must conform to the strategic policies of the Mid Devon Local Plan, national planning policy and human rights legislation. Neighbourhood plans are also subject to public examination and referendum.

As a first step in the preparation of the plan, Willand Parish Council has submitted the boundary of Willand parish as the proposed boundary of the neighbourhood area. The process will run alongside the District Council’s new Local Plan, which contains strategic planning policies and development allocations for Mid Devon. The Parish Council’s application and a map of the proposed area can be viewed at https://www.middevon.gov.uk/Willand-Neighbourhood-Plan

Comments are invited about the suitability of the Parish Council’s proposed neighbourhood area boundary, by email to planningconsultations@middevon.gov.uk or by post/delivery to Forward Planning, Mid Devon District Council, Phoenix House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton, EX16 6PP. All representations must include the sender’s postal address or they will not be registered. The deadline for representations is 12 noon on 21 January 2022.


A Neighbourhood Plan for Crediton

Crediton Town Council has applied to designate the parish of Newton St Cyres as an area for a Neighbourhood Plan. This is the sixth application Mid Devon District Council has received for a neighbourhood planning designation since the Localism Act (2011) gave local communities the power to produce plans for their own areas.

A neighbourhood plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development and growth of an area. It must conform to the strategic policies of the Mid Devon Local Plan, national planning policy and human rights legislation. Neighbourhood plans are also subject to public examination and referendum.

The Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by Crediton Town Council and a Steering Group, and has been shaped through engagement with the local community. It includes a vision, a set of objectives and 34 policies for how the local community would like to see Crediton parish develop and change over the coming years. The policies cover a range of topics, including principles for new development, affordable and custom and self-build homes, design, community facilities, shop fronts, cycle paths, renewable energy, employment, historic character, open space, trees, flood plains and green infrastructure. Once the Neighbourhood Plan has been finalised these policies can be used to help guide planning applications submitted to the Council for determination and inform the decisions made on these, alongside the policies of the adopted Mid Devon Local Plan and Devon Minerals and Waste Plans.

The Town Council’s submission can be viewed at www.middevon.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplanning, and at the Council’s Office, Phoenix House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton and at Crediton Town Council, 8a North Street, Crediton and Crediton Library, Belle Parade, Crediton.
