FOLK in North Devon are being asked to think about how some of the region's coastal villages can be protected for future generations.

North Devon Council is reviewing its conservation areas, looking at what makes them special and where they should be created, extended or reduced.

As a result, a public consultation is now taking place to consider proposals for Croyde, Georgeham and Putsborough.

Councillor Colin Wright, Lead Member for Planning, said: "The council has put together what are called Character Appraisals for these villages. These highlight the key characteristics of the areas, and what needs to be protected.

"We want as many people as possible to share their views on these findings, so that the information gathered can help us with our planning policy guidelines for the future."

The conservation area character appraisals can be viewed by going to the website http://northdevon-consult.limehouse.co.uk/portal.
