East Devon District Council (EDDC) is preparing a new Local Plan that is expected to ultimately replace the existing Local Plan. The new Local Plan will outline how the district addresses such issues as
- how many new homes should be built and where,
- how many new jobs should be created
- where employment sites should be built
- and how to deal with the climate emergency.
The new Local Plan is expected to cover the period to 2040. It is planned to produce a Draft Local Plan by the end of 2021. The decisions and planning policies set in the Local Plan up will affect West Hill in the years ahead.
The Parish Council is committed to keeping West Hill residents informed as the review progresses. We will do our best to ensure that West Hill residents' views are heard.
We have set up a new East Devon Local Plan webpage to provide information as it becomes becomes available.
