Totnes Neighbourhood Plan

 Update from Cllr Luker - Just a couple of clarification point concerning the Neighbourhood Plan report in the Totnes Times today (Friday 11th October):

a) we are not awaiting approval from SHDC but receipt of their comments on the draft plan. Any suggestion made will be incorporated into the plan. The idea being that we do not want the Plan being rejected when it goes to SHDC after the 6 week public consultation.(details available soon).

b) Affordable / Social housing is mentioned in the Plan - the difficulty in Totnes is available land to build social housing. Any new developments will have a percentage of affordable housing included. Unfortunately, as we all know, affordable does not mean what it says.

If anyone has any questions on the NP then please email me or contact the Council offices.



The next meeting of the Totnes Neighbourhood Plan Working Group will be on Wednesday 6th November at 2pm in the Guildhall. We hope to be able to confirm arrangements for the public consutlation on the draft Neighbourhood Plan at this meeting. All are welcome to attend. T

A copy of the draft Neighbourhood Plan that will go to Full Council (Item 11) on 7th October 2019 can be found    HERE
