SIR - As chairman of the Local Development Framework for Torridge District Council I understand how complex and difficult responding to the consultations is for some people in the format that it is presented. As councillors we needed it translated from "planning speak," too. Unfortunately it has to go to a wide range of professionals who need it in that layout and it would take too much time and resources to do several formats. So I'm writing to encourage people to just write in to the Planning Policy Department, Riverbank House, Bideford EX38 2QG as soon as possible (within the next two weeks) with their views on where the best places are for development, how they would like to see it done, particularly re design and sustainability and any other ideas they have for how Torridge can be improved. All responses will be read and help us decide what to put in our development documents though we are constrained by what the Government says - eg the amount of houses they expect us to build. We will do our best to represent views but will never please everybody. Miranda Cox Northam Town and District Councillor Chairman of the LDF group
