9. Budleigh Salterton (made)
A report was taken to Cabinet on the 4 October 2017 recommending that the Budleigh Salterton Neighbourhood Plan be 'made' 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 Plans. The date of 'making' the Plan is 12 October 2017. This is following the successful referendum on 6 September 2017 where almost 95% of residents who voted were in favour of adopting the Plan. The 'Made' Budleigh Salterton Neighbourhood Plan is available to view.
On 6 September a Referendum was held on the Budleigh Salterton Neighbourhood Plan. Residents were asked the following question:
“Do you want East Devon District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Budleigh Salterton to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
Voters agreed overwhelmingly that the Plan should be used to determine planning applications, with 94.7% (or 1430 voters) voting ‘Yes’. 73 people voted ‘no’ and there were 2 abstentions.
