Posted on: 1 June 2018

The new Local Plan for Mid Devon takes a step closer to being completed.

The Inspector has confirmed that the preliminary hearings into Policy J27 Land at Junction 27 and associated Policies SP2 Higher Town, Sampford Peverell and TIV16 Blundell’s School, will take place on 20 and 21 September 2018. After that, the Inspector will clarify the situation in relation to those Policies and how the Examination will then proceed.

The Inspector has issued revised documents for Matters and Issues (ID02a) and the Hearing Programme (ID03a) but is not inviting further hearing statements from the Council or other participants.

The preliminary hearings will be held at Crystal Suite, Best Western Tiverton Hotel, Blundell’s Road, Tiverton, Devon, EX16 4DB, commencing at 10.00am on Thursday 20 September 2018.

Councillor Richard Chesterton, Cabinet Member for Planning, Economy and Regeneration, said: “This is great news for Mid Devon. The preliminary hearings are an important step forward to having a new adopted plan that will help provide much needed homes, job opportunities and infrastructure in the district, and also help to protect our high quality environment.”
