Devon Minerals Plan: Pre-submission Draft

DMC meeting will be held at County Hall at 2pm on Wednesday 15 July to endorse the Pre-submission Draft of the new Devon Minerals Plan, before the start of a 12 week public consultation. 

At this meeting, an officer will no doubt provide a summary of the work undertaken for the new plan and the results of previous consultations, and, although the public will not be permitted to speak, Cllr Wright and Cllr Channon are expected to address members of the committee. Local people with an interest are encouraged to attend, particularly because:
5.4.9 Policy M12 therefore provides for the supply of sand and gravel at Straitgate Farm, near Ottery St Mary, subject to extraction being limited to dry working above the maximum water table to avoid potentially adverse impacts on private water supplies and water-sensitive habitats.
