One week left of Local Plan consultation
Supporters and critics of Teignbridge’s draft Local Plan have just one week left (noon on Monday 13 March) to have their say before the fifth and final public consultation closes.
The Plan identifies land for homes and jobs for local people, protects valued environments and creates more public open spaces. It tackles climate change and promotes low carbon energy to help secure future needs. It also sets out the infrastructure needed to support developments - such as roads, schools and healthcare.
Urging people to participate in the consultation, Executive Member for Planning, Cllr Gary Taylor said: "The final draft proposals have been shaped by the more than 7,000 people who have contributed their views at the different consultation stages.
“Residents, businesses and other organisations have just a few days left to take advantage of this final consultation and submit their views. Please take the time to do so by completing the feedback form by noon on Monday.
“May I thank everyone who has participated by giving us their comments - your views could make a difference.”
After next Monday, the draft Plan and all comments received from residents, businesses and other organisations will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for review and public examination. Anyone who submits a written objection can request to appear before the inspector at the Local Plan examination hearing.
