Consultation begins on local plan for East Devon

Residents can have their say on the blueprint for the district.

EAST Devon residents will have eight weeks to comment on proposals for the new blueprint for the district.

The draft plan will be available to view from Thursday and East Devon District Council is inviting residents to have their say on specifics they would like to see amended.

The plan has allocated 1,050 new homes plus eight hectares of employment land in Axminster, 450 new homes plus 15 hectares for jobs in Honiton and 150 new homes plus three hectares for jobs in Seaton.

The review will run until the end of January and feedback will be used to fine-tune the plan before it is sent to the Government.
