East Devon Distrcit Council has just published their draft Villages Development Plan for consultation. Although this deals with villages other than any of those in our parish, it sets out how built-up area boundaries are defined and the ‘proximity to services’ rule which defines development. Although the plan is not strictly speaking relevant to our Parish, it touches on issues which have been of interest to us and subject to public debate.
It is published on our web site for general public information.
