The first draft of the Teignbridge Local Plan Review (Issues Consultation) is out for consultation until 16th July. Teignbridge District Council is running a ‘Call for Sites’ process in parallel to the Review – requesting information on potential housing and employment sites.
The Teignbridge Local Plan was adopted in May 2014 and runs from 2013-2033. There is a legal requirement to review the Plan every five years, to ensure that the policies and proposals are up to date and reflect the changing needs of the area.
The draft Local Plan Review is fairly high level at this stage but does make a number of proposals. The headlines are:
The end date of the Local Plan will be extended to 2040 to bring it in line with the Greater Exeter Strategic Plan.
