Have your say on the Lyn Plan
‘Blueprint’ for Lynton, Lynmouth and Barbrook back out for public consultation.
PEOPLE in Lynton and Lynmouth are being asked to have their say on a blueprint for the future of their communities.
Residents and businesses are invited to say what they think about the draft Neighbourhood Plan, ‘The Lyn Plan’, which Lynton Town Council has put out for consultation from tomorrow (Thursday) until January 11.
Last year the council became one of the first parishes in the country to enable the community to write its own Neighbourhood Plan.
Initial public consultation has indicated people would like to see homes for locals and workers; strong businesses and jobs plus a strong economy, affordable homes and ‘no more second homes’.
Once the plan is adopted it will be come a legal document which must be taken into account when planning decisions are made.
“The Neighbourhood Plan has taken on board the views of the community and we hope sets out what they wish to see in the future for Lynton and Lynmouth,” said the Mayor, Councillor Suzette Hibbert.

“The plan is an important document which will be used to decide planning applications in the parish so we would encourage residents and business owners to look at it and let us know if we have got it right.”
There will be a series of meetings over the next few weeks, including a meeting at Lynton Town Hall on Wednesday, November 28 at 7pm.
Leaflets will be distributed to households and businesses throughout the community to explain what the plan aims to do, and copies of it will be available at the Town Hall. Or view and download the plan and have your say at www.lynplan.org.uk
