1. Issues and Options consultation

East Devon District Council consulted the public on an Issues and Options report, which forms the first stage of preparing the new East Devon Local Plan (2021-2040) and sets out differing options/approaches that the plan could take, from January to March 15th 2021.

A Local Plan shows how an area will develop in the future and provides policies which will guide decisions on whether or not planning applications are granted.

You can also read a PDF of the consultation report or watch a YouTube video which highlights the main points.

Alongside the Issues and Options consultation we also ran:

  • A Call for Sites, where members of the public could submit land for development;
  • A Sustainability Appraisal scoping report consultation, to ensure that potential social, environmental and economic considerations are taken into account.

PLEASE NOTE: The consultation has now closed.
