Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan: Pre-Submission Draft Plan Consultation

After nearly two years of public consultations, the Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are pleased to announce an important stage in the statutory process which steers us towards the legal status of an adopted and “Made Plan”. Please note that as of 28th February, the start of the six-week statutory consultation period, the Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan has now formally entered the statutory stage of ‘Emerging Plan’.

Our consultations have been extensive, involving all households in our Designated Area, businesses, special interest groups and young people with the support of our schools. We have had the full support of the Sidmouth Herald in publicising our surveys and the issues involved, and have maintained websites at sidmouth.gov.uk/index.php/neighbourhood-plan and sidvalleyneighbourhoodplan.com, where reports from all our consultations can be accessed.

The Plan is available to view online at sidmouth.gov.uk and at sidvalleyneighbourhoodplan.com

Hard copies of the plan can also be viewed at Sidmouth Town Council - Woolcombe House, Sidmouth, EDDC - The Knowle Sidmouth, and Sidmouth Library.

The six-week consultation runs from 28th February 2018 to 11th April 2018 after which no further comments will be taken into account.

Comments and responses should be submitted using the form via email to: neighbourhood@sidmouth.gov.uk

Or by post to:

SVNP, Sidmouth Town Council,
Woolcombe House
Devon EX10 9BB

Please be aware that all comments and responses will be made publicly available via the Neighbourhood Plan website and afterwards via an archive link held at Sidmouth Town Council Offices.
