Next steps for the Neighbourhood Plan

The final draft of the Neighbourhood Plan, taking in the comments from the Inspector and approved by the EDDC Planners, has now been submitted to EDDC and is expected to be put to Cabinet for approval in August.

If this is successful, EDDC will organise a referendum and all electors in Uplyme will be able to decide whether or not it should be adopted as part of the local planning guidance.

Please take the time to download the document (PDF file) and see what it contains – not only guidelines on where new developments happen, but hoped-for improvements to traffic and pedestrian problems in the village, support for community assets and local businesses, and the welfare of our beautiful environment.

It’s taken us 4 years to get here, so we are on the last stretch – but we do need the help of the electors to get this adopted for use by the EDDC planners etc.

There are also other documents that are part of the formal plan, which you can download too from the NP home page.
