inspector to consider plan for East Devon villages

PUBLISHED: 16:10 24 July 2017 | UPDATED: 16:10 24 July 2017


Planning guidelines for selected villages in East Devon, including Woodbury and East Budleigh, have reached a crucial stage in their planned implementation.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) has submitted its East Devon Villages Plan for formal examination by an independent inspector.

EDDC has produced the plan to help guide decisions on how development should be directed in the villages.

Lympstone is not included as it has an approved Neighbourhood Plan.

The submission follows the final round of public consultation, which included 48 objections from Clyst St Mary residents, relating to Winslade Park, and around 30 supportive comments relating to proposals for Greendale Business Park, near Woodbury Salterton.

Councillor Phil Twiss, deputy leader of EDDC and portfolio holder for strategic development and partnerships, said: “The inspector is currently considering whether the plan is sound. We currently expect oral hearing sessions for the plan to take place during the autumn, but will be able to confirm that nearer the time.”
