News from the Neighbourhood Plan…
The full agenda will be displayed nearer the time but one major item to be discussed will be the outline planning application for 6 new houses on land at Canada Hill. More information may be found on Teignbridge District Council’s website - application reference 16/03382. Comments from individuals may be submitted online to Teignbridge by 9th February.
Also expected to be discussed is the final draft of the Ogwell Neighbourhood Plan, which if approved by the District Council will be put to a local referendum later this year.
Parishioners are welcome to attend and observe local democracy in action.
MOBILE PHONE MAST – for those who are not already aware, Vodafone’s application to build a 15 metre mobile phone mast in the old village just outside the Conservation Area has been refused by Teignbridge District Council.
“ To maintain the environmental and cultural heritage of our diverse parish while promoting planning and practical initiatives to support the sustainability of our village and the well-being of its community.”
This vision, and the parish profile statement which was also adopted, form the basis on which each of the four theme groups on well-being, paths, environment and housing, move forward in developing objectives and potential options for achieving them. The outcomes of this work, including the vision statement itself and the parish profile, will form part of our next consultation exercise with the whole local community later in the year.
The theme groups are now engaged in weighing up the pros and cons of different approaches to respond to the issues raised by our community to date. If you would like to join one of these groups, or learn a little more about the Neighbourhood Planning process, please come to our next meeting, which will be held at the Memorial Hall on Thursday, 19th February at 7.30pm.
