Villages Plan adopted

On 26 July EDDC adopted the East Devon Villages Plan, together with the East Devon Local Plan. This will form the basis for decisions on planning in the district until 2031 .

For Musbury this means the inclusion within the Built Up Area Boundary of

a) a small portion of Baxters Farm –  This has not been allocated for development, although EDDC has produced a draft development brief to inform any development proposals that may be put forward.

Views on the draft are sought by  Monday 10th September 2018.

You can see the draft document here. 

b) the field adjoining Mountfield House (although the Plan states ‘it is it unlikely that it would be suitable for development unless, in exceptional circumstances, development would minimise harm in all respects upon the historic environment and secure the future of Mountfield, a heritage asset at risk‘).
