31. Payhembury (made)
On the 5 June 2019, Cabinet resolved to ‘make’ the Payhembury Neighbourhood Plan so that it forms part of the Development Plan for East Devon alongside any other made neighbourhood plans, the adopted East Devon Local Plan 2013-2031, and the Devon Minerals and Waste Plan. The date of 'making' the Plan is 13 June 2019. This was following the successful referendum on 2 May 2019, where 82% of residents who voted were in favour of adopting the Plan.
The Adopted version of the Payhembury Neighbourhood Plan is available to view.
