The Local Plan 2013-2031 was adopted on 28 January 2016.

The wording of Policy TC8, in accordance with Main Modification 176, in the printed version of the plan (as on the web site) is incorrect, it should read in respect of Item a):

TC8 - Safeguarding of Land Required for Highway and Access Improvements

Land required for the following highway and access schemes will be safeguarded from other development.

Road Schemes

a) Completion of Dinan Way at Exmouth. The extent of safeguarded land is indicated on the Proposals Map.  Future planning for and the implementation of this proposal will need to be compliant with Habitat Regulation requirements and place full regard on the importance of assets and setting of assets of heritage and landscape importance.

In the printed Local Plan the Main Modification text was not included but it was a requirement of the Inspector and the recommendation to Council and Council minutes advise that the plan be adopted with all Main Modifications incorporated.
