2014 Local plan … and housing figures latest

One of the founding principles of the Vision Group was to ‘commend the residents’ vision to the Local Development Framework’ …

… which was to become the draft Local Plan.

That was almost ten years ago. Now we should be entering the closing stages, but it’s proving a very difficult and protracted process…

There has been some news in the local media:

Thousands more homes for region? – News – Sidmouth Herald

And press release from the District Council:
