Discussion is due to be held when it comes to Mid Devon District Council (MDDC) Cabinet for approval at the next meeting on Thursday, August 6 2020.

Liberal Democrats in Mid Devon will be asking members of the ruling Cabinet to immediately pause involvement in the current Greater Exeter Strategic Plan (GESP).

Discussion is due to be held when it comes to Mid Devon District Council (MDDC) Cabinet for approval at the next meeting on Thursday, August 6 2020.

The call comes in light of the recent decision by East Devon councillors to recommend withdrawing from GESP at a meeting held on July 23.

Luke Taylor, leader of the Liberal group on the Council, said: “Due to the momentous decision of East Devon Councillors to recommend withdrawing from GESP, it is only right that we ask to immediately pause our involvement in Mid Devon with GESP to understand the full ramifications of this potential decision by East Devon.

“It would not be right to continue the process when one of the key members of GESP is potentially about to pull out of the process. It will have a huge impact on Mid Devon going forward, and we must understand the full implications before proceeding any further.”

Currently, Mid Devon Council is controlled by Independent councillors supported by the Liberal Democrats.
