West Alvington, Kingsbridge and Churchstow Councils are currently working together through a joint steering group to produce a joint Neighbourhood Plan
This is a formal document that sets out planning policies which will last until 2034 and be used as a blueprint for planners and councils to decide local planning applications and/or to encourage certain sorts of local development. The object is to ensure the community gets the type of development structure that it wants. Until now SHDC has produced its own local plan for the whole South Hams. Once our neighbourhood plan is in place this will be used to supplement the SHDC plan. We cannot however override the Joint Local Plan.
What goes in our plan will depend on YOU! As far as is reasonably possible it will cover your wishes and views on:
Employment, housing and homes, community and leisure facilities, commerce and the economy, transport, traffic and parking, education training and social support, natural environment, built environment, health, exercise and well being.
At certain stages the plan will be subject to consultation, however if you have comments at any time you can contact the Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
