Dear Sir or Madam
Consultation on the Draft Villages Development Plan Document (DPD)
East Devon District Council has produced a Draft Villages Development Plan Document (DPD) for consultation. This plan sets out Council proposals for where development in East Devon villages and smaller settlements (as identified in Strategy 27 of the New East Devon Local Plan 2006-26) is proposed. The DPD complements the main Local Plan and sets out policies and boundaries for developments at those settlements proposed for housing growth. It also includes some local village policies.
Views are sought of the public, community groups and organisations, businesses and any other interested bodies or individuals on proposed sites and policies for development at East Devon villages and at Greendale and Hill Barton business parks. The Draft Villages DPD and Representation Form will be available to view at the Council Offices, libraries around the District and online at
Representations can be made by filling out and returning a representation form or writing to Villages DPD, Planning Policy, East Devon District Council, Knowle,Station Road, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, emailing, or by clicking on RefPoints in an electronic version of the plan (you must be connected to the internet to do this). Please see the Villages DPD and Guidance Note at the end of the Representation Form for further details.
The closing date for receipt of representations is 12 Noon on Monday 10 March 2014. Please note that representations received after this time/date may not be taken into account. The intention is that feedback received will inform a revised draft of the plan that will be produced later this year.
Yours faithfully
Matthew Dickins
