20. Feniton (made)
On the 11 July 2018, Cabinet resolved to ‘make’ the Feniton Neighbourhood Plan so that it forms part of the Development Plan for East Devon alongside the adopted East Devon Local Plan 2013-2031, and the Devon Minerals and Waste Plan. This was following the successful referendum on 17 May 2018, where 93.71% of residents who voted were in favour of adopting the Plan.
The Feniton Neighbourhood Plan referendum was undertaken on the 17 May 2018 where voters were asked the question:
"Do you want East Devon District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Feniton to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"
The results are as follows:
Number cast in favour of a 'YES'
Number cast in favour of a 'NO'
The Declaration of the Result is available to download.
