PEOPLE living in rural areas of Torridge will be able to raise local planning issues in face to face meetings with council planners in their own villages.

Torridge District Council is holding three planning surgeries in rural areas at the end of this month and the beginning of February.

Planning officers will be available to answer questions, whether this relates to plans for people's own property or interest in what others may be doing.

Plans Committee chairman Councillor Hugo Barton said: "We appreciate that not all of our residents, particularly those who live in rural areas, are able to come along to council offices to discuss planning issues. As we are now in the middle of the Core Strategy consultation period, we thought it would be an appropriate time to take ourselves out into the rural community for our residents who would like to discuss any issues they may have face-to-face."
