Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 14 Consultation

North Tawton Draft Neighbourhood Plan

Embracing the past, planning the future

Tell us what you think!

The Neighbourhood Plan Group, on behalf of North Tawton Town Council, are now ready to present the Draft Neighbourhood Plan. They are looking for your comments on this draft before it is submitted to West Devon Borough Council who will be responsible for taking it forward to the next stage. This is an important milestone.

The Neighbourhood Plan is your plan. It’s based on the views that have been expressed over the past few years, first in response to a detailed questionnaire sent to every household, and then at a series of open meetings and consultation events. All the comments that were received have been considered and the policies that make up the plan – policies on housing, economic development, conserving our natural environment and more – are based on what the people of North Tawton have said is important to them in protecting our heritage and planning for the future.

Now is the time to check whether the draft plan is on the right track and that you agree with the policies proposed. Officially, this is referred to as Regulation 14 Consultation. You have seven weeks to look at the plan and send your comments to the Town Council.

The consultation opens at 12 noon on Monday, 4th December 2017 and you have until 5 p.m. on Monday 15 January, 2018 to respond.

Where to see the Neighbourhood Plan:

  • online on the North Tawton Council website:
  • during working hours in the Town Council offices, 14a the Square, North Tawton
  • during opening hours at key public venues including the waiting rooms at the medical and dental surgeries, the cafés and public houses, the hairdressing salons, and at Okehampton Library.

How to make your comments?

  • On the comment form accompanying hard copies of the draft plan in the public venues

There will be a drop-in session at North Tawton Town Hall on Saturday, 6th January from 10 a.m. until 12 noon. Come along and give us your comments and ask any questions you may have.
