  • Buckfastleigh Neighbourhood Plan

    Posted on May 25th, 2015 andy No comments

    The Buckfastleigh Neighbourhood Planning process, which will set out our plan for the community for the next 10 years, is almost complete.

    There will be a public consultation meeting in the Town Hall on Wednesday 27th May 7.00-9.00 to find out about the draft Buckfastleigh and Buckfast Neighbourhood Plan. The Plan is now being prepared following 18 months of community consultation. It will be presented at the Town Hall and all residents, young and old, are warmly invited.
    The meeting will be your opportunity to ask questions about the Plan’s ten key recommendations for developing the town and parish over the next ten years.
    It will include a presentation on the views of children and young people, and will include a short film on how they would like to see the town developed. There will also be an exhibition of sketch designs of what the town and parish could look like by 2025, if the recommendations are realised.
    The Plan presents practical proposals for – creating affordable homes; new jobs and enterprises; a new town centre; more tourism, heritage and nature conservation; greater leisure and vocational training facilities; better flood protection and measures to reduce noise pollution from the A38 and much more!
    The draft Neighbourhood Plan is available to download here – Buckfastleigh Neighbourhood Plan Final (CMc).
