Dartmouth Neighbourhood Plan has reached a new milestone after being approved by town councillors.
The Plan was approved at the last full council meeting of Dartmouth Town Council on January 10, with a unanimous vote in its favour. It will now be sent to South Hams Council for their Regulation 15 consultation.
Robert Brooke, chairman of the Plan’s steering group said: “On behalf of the Dartmouth Plan Steering Group I wish to say we’re delighted that we’ve succeeded after a very full community wide consultation to get the Plan put together and approved at this stage of the whole process.”
The long-awaited Dartmouth Neighbourhood Plan was out for public consultation last year before being put to town councillors last week. Following input from South Hams Council an independent examiner will look over everything in detail and, subject to their decisions, there will be a referendum when the community has its final say.
