The Teignbridge Local Plan is being reviewed at the moment. Part 2 of the plan sets out the possible sites that might be earmarked for development in the future, and consultation is open until Monday 9 August 2021.
Central Government imposes housing numbers on District Councils, and insists that our Local Plan complies with national policy. Teignbridge must show that it has a land supply for 751 houses per year or central government may take over control of planning, as happened recently in South Oxfordshire. Including a site does not mean that it will be built on, it does mean that the land owner has indicated that they are interested in development and Teignbridge has not ruled it out. There are more sites in the consultation than are needed to meet the target imposed by the Government. It is important that local people’s views can be heard on planning issues and the consultation is our chance. This can really influence how our community develops for years to come.
