Draft East Devon Local Plan – Consultation Feedback Report

  • by JW

“It just seeks to set out a summary of what people and organisations have said to us.”


Six months ago, the District Council was asking for feedback on its draft local plan: East Devon Local Plan consultation: VGS submission 2023 – Vision Group for Sidmouth and 

However, soon after, it decided to pause the process: BREAKING: East Devon local plan put on hold – Vision Group for Sidmouth

This was largely due to pressure on the government over housing: EXCLUSIVE: East Devon Local Plan: What is its housing target? – Vision Group for Sidmouth

Today, the District Council has released an interim report, providing that feedback: Comments made during the Draft Local Plan Consultation and Feedback Report – East Devon

This is from the District Council’s email sent out today:

There were a substantial number of comments made on the Draft East Devon Local Plan but key matters have now been incorporated, in summary form, into a feedback report.
This report does not provide officer comment on the feedback received nor contain any officer recommendations on possible future actions – it just seeks to set out a summary of what people and organisations have said to us. Future work will look at actions in response to feedback.
The feedback is to be reported to the Strategic Planning Committee of East Devon District Council on the 21 July 2023 – please click here for more details.
The feedback report is lengthy, over 500 sides long, so paper versions are not being circulated. However, a printed copy will be available to inspect at the EDDC offices at Blackdown House, Border Road, Heathpark Industrial Estate, Honiton. If you do want to view this paper copy, please call 01395 571533.
