Neighbourhood Plan 2015-19

It has been proposed that the parish produces a Neighbourhood Plan, which, if adopted, would mean that a higher percentage of Section 106 funds could be directed to local projects.

Progress will be reported here and at Parish Council meetings.

Update June 2019

The draft Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to the Parish
Council for their review. It's anticipated that the plan will be submitted
to East Devon District Council on 1st July and following their review
will be issued to residents for consultation in September 2019.

Housing Style Consultation Analysis Report available here

Questionnaire Response Report available to download from


Following the recent analysis of Questionnaire responses, another short
consultation is taking place to find out what STYLES OF HOUSING people
want (and don't want) to see in the Parish if new housing is authorised in
the future. Please click on this link to see photos
of sample housing styles and then use this second link to complete the
survey by 30 November 2017 -

Any new volunteers to help with the NHP would be very welcome; in particular
we’re due to start writing policies and anyone who’s interested and experienced
in writing policies is really needed now.

Any questions? Please email us using address just below.
