More development for Exminster?
Teignbridge District Council is reviewing its Local Plan. This could have long-term consequences for Exminster.
The Local Plan is a document that sets out policies, proposals and actions needed to meet environmental, social and economic challenges facing the area.
Areas of land in Exminster Parish have been proposed as potential development sites. If these sites make it through to the final version of the Local Plan, developers will be able to build on the sites with less opposition.
