We have now published the Proposed Modifications for consultation. All information on the consultation, how to comment, and the events we are holding are available on our Local Plan Review page. We will be holding the following virtual events during the consultation:

Parish Council Workshop
Wednesday 16th June, 4pm-6pm

Buckfastleigh Sites Drop-In
Wednesday 23rd June, 4pm-6pm

Public Drop-In
Tuesday 29th June, 2pm-4pm

There is a Quick Guide to the consultation online, and some FAQs specifically on the changes at Buckfastleigh – hopefully this helps make things clearer, as we are mindful this is quite a technical stage in the process.

The consultation is open until 5pm on Monday 19th July 2021. Please ensure your comments are with us by then. We encourage all comments to be made using the online form on our website. Alternatively you can download a comment form and return it by email or post.

At this stage comments are invited only on the proposed modifications and the soundness of the Plan following those modifications. Comments on areas of the Plan which are not being modified can no longer be considered.

The Authority is required to carry out a sustainability appraisal of the Modifications, as well as an assessment of its compliance with Habitat Regulations. You are invited to comment on these reports, too, and they are available on our website.

We ask you to please take every opportunity to share the details of this consultation with anybody who may be interested. We will be notifying everyone on our Local Plan Consultee List, as well as sharing details more widely through press releases, Facebook and Twitter. We are also holding a public drop-in sessions where we will be available to answer any questions, with further details on our website.

If you have any questions about the consultation please do contact us.

Kind regards,
