Draft East Devon Local Plan – what’s your view?

  • by JW

Consultation period to run until Friday 18 January 2024


The District Council has just agreed to push ahead with plans to build an 8,000-home new zero-carbon town in the District – which would be part of its long-term planning for East Devon.

And now it has put its latest draft Local Plan out to consultation, as it seeks public input:

The Council Plan outlines a roadmap for the work of EDDC over the next 4 years and covers the key priorities of the council: better homes and communities for all; a greener East Devon; a resilient economy; and quality service delivery. Residents can choose to comment on all four priorities or just the priority that interests them. The consultation will give residents the chance to have their say and ensure the new EDDC Council Plan best reflects the views of its local people.

The consultation on the EDDC Council Plan is available online through the council’s consultation website: – and the consultation period will run until Friday 18 January 2024:

The first draft of our East Devon Council Plan 2023-2027 is now available to read. We want to hear your thoughts on our draft Council Plan in order to shape the next version.
