MID Devon District Council has arranged two local public exhibitions where people can find out more about Mid Devon's Local Plan, covering the how the district sees the area up to the year 2033.
These will both be held at the Council Offices, Market Street, Crediton.
The first will take place on Saturday, February 21 from 9.30am to 12.30pm and the second on Tuesday, February 24 from 4pm to 7pm.
The public is invited to comment on the Local Plan, which has evolved in full consultation with local communities, before it is sent to an Independent Planning Inspector for approval and then adoption.
At the same time as the Local Plan, the council has prepared the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a way to ensure that developers make a fair and reasonable contribution towards the schools, roads, leisure facilities and other local infrastructure needed in the area.
Parish and town councils, including Crediton and Crediton Hamlets, will receive a proportion of this levy from developments in their area, to spend on their own local priorities.
Consultation takes place until March 30.
The Local Plan Review, its Sustainability Appraisal, CIL documents, Statements of the Representations Procedure and other associated information can be viewed on reception at council offices and at Mid Devon public libraries (including the mobile library) during normal opening hours.
If you wish to comment on both consultations you must send in two separate representations. When making a representation you must include your name and full postal address, otherwise your comments cannot be registered.
Addresses will only be used to inform people about the new plan, CIL and other planning matters.
