North Devon and Torridge District councils are on track to put their joint plan for the future of the two districts into action by May 2016.

The joint Local Plan has been in the making for several years, with multiple public consultations taking place.

As portfolio holder, Cllr Jeremy Yabsley will give an update on the progress of the joint local development plan working group at a North Devon Council meeting tonight (Wednesday).

According to the report to members, the group sees a May deadline for submission to the secretary of state as ‘achievable’.

A final consultation on affordable housing, starter homes on exceptions sites and the identification of areas suitable for on-shore wind energy will run until December 3.
