SALCOMBE’S Neighbourhood Development Group have circulated the final Community Consultation Survey to all homes in the town.

The group have requested that everybody in Salcombe ‘makes every effort to complete the survey, as the future of Salcombe is so important to us all.’

The survey forms a key part of the Neighbourhood Development Plan, and will shape the way that Salcombe develops in the future.

It will consist of locally approved planning policies which will be taken into account when there are planning applications or new build proposals in the future.

Neighbourhood planning is a way for communities such as Salcombe to decide the future of the place where they live and work. There is evidence that these plans carry real ‘teeth’ and give local people a voice.

Salcombe Mayor Mike Fice, who chairs the Neighbourhood Development Group, said: ‘We are very keen that all homeowners respond to the questionnaire as this 2016 survey is a crucially important part of the NDP process.

‘Once the plan draft is written it will then be further validated by the community, independently inspected to ensure that it complies with all relevant legislation and then submitted to a referendum of all locally registered voters.’

‘This is Salcombe’s real opportunity to “have your say,”’ Cllr Fice added.

The closing date for the survey is Sunday, November 20.
