Making the Plymouth and South West Devon Local Plan

Plymouth City Council, South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council submitted the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan to the Secretary of State on 31 July 2017.

This followed a six week consultation period on the pre-submission draft which ran from 15 March to midnight 26 April 2017. The Joint Local Plan will now be subject to a public examination by an independent Planning Inspector.

Copies of all the representations made during this consultation stage have been sent to the Planning Inspectorate and can be viewed on the consultation portal. Responses to each representation can be viewed as part of the Regulation 22 Statement (Response Report).

The Joint Local Plan, together with the Evidence Base, the Integrated Assessment, the Regulation 22 Statement and Past Consultation Documents are available on the Plymouth City Council website.

If you're having trouble viewing any of the documents email plymouthplan@plymouth.gov.uk or call 01752 305477.
