An area of land, 153ha in size to the east of Tiverton is allocated for development. A Masterplan, the Tiverton EUE Masterplan SPD, was adopted in 2014 and makes reference to three housing clusters South of West Manley Lane. The Council is seeking to amend the Adopted Masterplan SPD to remove the three land parcels and welcomes comments from the public on their removal. It’s noted that the consultation event relates specifically to the removal of the three housing clusters. It will not address any other issues associated with the Tiverton EUE.

Councillor Richard Chesterton, Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, said:

“This consultation event provides a great opportunity for interested individuals, groups and organisations to make their comments known regarding the three housing clusters identified South of West Manley Lane within the Adopted Masterplan SPD. It’s an opportunity to influence whether this part of the Tiverton Eastern Urban Extension should be green infrastructure rather than developed for housing.’’
