Your Plan , Your Say !


The Salcombe Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Salcombe ND Plan Group, having carefully considered all the representations made at the Regulation 14 consultation stage in Feb/March 2018, has, where deemed appropriate, modified the Plan for submission under Regulation 15 of the NDP legislation.

The revised Plan was then submitted, in August, for a formal ‘health check’ by an independent examiner appointed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Other than a few minor suggested amendments and clarifications this health check pronounced the Salcombe Plan to be:

“well presented and constructive and presents a positive basis for planning for the Parish for the future. It is beautifully illustrated and supported by a wide range of well researched evidence.

Its objectives and policies are quite distinctive to Salcombe and both residents and those unfamiliar with the area will be able to quickly grasp the key issues which the town faces and the wider context.”

The examiner’s suggested amendments were adopted and the revised version was ratified by Salcombe Town Council on Wednesday 10th October and formally submitted to South Hams District Council on Friday October 12th.
As required under Neighbourhood Planning legislation, South Hams District Council will shortly conduct a further six week consultation (Regulation 16).It is expected that this consultation will be launched during the week commencing Monday 29th October 2018

Neighbourhood Plan submitted to District Council on 12th October 2018.

Details of SHDC’s six week (Regulation 16) consultation and how to respond will be advised as soon as SHDC let us know the details.
If you commented on the Plan at Regulation 14 you do not need to respond this time unless you consider your comments have not been addressed in the latest version of the plan.
Any representations received under this Regulation 16 consultation will be passed directly to an independently appointed Examiner who will determine if the Plan is “sound” and produce a report with recommendations, notably whether the Plan can go forward to referendum.
A referendum will be organised by the Electoral Registration team at South Hams DC. If the Plan is passed at referendum it then becomes law and must be taken into account by Planning officers when considering any and all future planning applications or other development proposals in the parish up to the year 2034.
