Have your say on future of twin villages
All sections of the community invited to comment and take part in helping to shape the Lynton and Lynmouth Neighbourhood Plan.
SOME of the youngest members of the community have been helping to get the Lynton and Lynmouth Neighbourhood Plan off to a flying start.
On Friday children at Lynton Primary School suggested some of their ideas to visiting volunteers and Devon County Councillor Andrea Davis.
Last year Lynton Town Council was successful in its bid to be one of the first parishes in the country to enable the community to write its own Neighbourhood Plan and a public consultation is now running until the end of February.
A skate park and all-weather sports pitch were popular choices with the children, but other ideas included a media centre and a scientific research centre.

Residents and businesses are being urged to have their say on where they wish to see new housing, business or community development.
If a referendum vote is successful, the plan will become a legal document and must be taken into account when planning decisions are made.
