A blueprint document which sets out how Clyst St George should look in years to come has been backed by the community.
One in every four residents went to the polls to decide if the village’s neighbourhood plan should be accepted with more than 90 per cent saying yes.
The plan sets out policies for future development in Clyst St George and, once East Devon District Council (EDDC) has ‘made’ the document, will help to inform future decisions about development and planning applications.
The questioned posed to voters was ‘Do you want EDDC to use the neighbourhood plan for the parish to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’
Of the 25 per cent turnout, 93 per cent voted in favour.
Councillor Bruce de Saram EDDC lead councillor for neighbourhood planning, said: “I was very pleased to see how well the neighbourhood plans were supported in the recent referendums.”
