Launch of Culm Garden Village Website
Posted on: 31 October 2018
Mid Devon District Council has launched a new website for the Garden Village development to the east of Cullompton at https://www.culmgardenvillage.co.uk/. Information and progress updates will be published on this website. As the project develops, all public consultation materials will be available on the website with details on how to have your say.
Currently dubbed as the ‘Culm Garden Village’, the proposed development is one of only 14 areas awarded Garden Village Status by the Government in January 2017. The Garden Village has the potential to deliver up to 5,000 sustainable new homes in a country park landscape, with jobs, community facilities and transport, all integrated with Cullompton itself.
The garden village project will be locally-led. The project is supported by Cullompton Town Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and a lot of work has already been done with community groups in thinking about the new community and its relationship to Cullompton. The next steps are to agree a vision for the Garden Village and a number of key principles by which it will be developed and to start to masterplan the Garden Village.
Richard Chesterton, Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Regeneration, said:
“We have created a bespoke website linked to social media and this has been developed to inform and engage with the local community. Longer term plans include the development of an interactive consultation module to better connect with residents and stakeholders.”Planning
