Mid Devon Local Plan Review – Proposed Main Modifications
January 7, 2020

Council invites public comments on proposed main modifications to help finalise the new local plan…


The Mid Devon Local Plan Review was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in March 2017 for examination. Public hearings were held in September 2018 and February 2019 which provided an opportunity for people to have their views heard by an independent Inspector.

The Council has now published a package of 55 proposed main modifications to the plan following the Inspector’s advice for changes to make it ‘sound’ and capable of being adopted. These include bringing forward development sooner at Higher Town, Sampford Peverell and also at Colebrook, Cullompton where there are no restrictions on timing, to address his concerns about housing supply in the early years of the plan, and providing a more flexible approach for Gypsy and Traveller sites.
