The Town Council and Steering Group are pleased to report that the result of the Referendum was that 80% of those who voted on 5th May, voted YES to the Newton Abbot Neighbourhood  Development Plan being adopted as planning policy.

Following the Referendum the Plan has now been 'made' (adopted) by Teignbridge District Council.  This now means that the Newton Abbot Neighbourhood Development Plan has been brought into legal force, and forms part of the statutory Development Plan for Teignbridge District.  Consequently, planning decisions in Newton Abbot Parish will be made in accordance with Newton Abbot Neighbourhood Development Plan 2016-2033 and the Teignbridge Local Plan 2013-2033.   Please CLICK HERE to view The Decision Statement 

Thank you very much to those who took the time to vote in favour of the Plan.

Thank you also to all those who have given their time so freely to work through the process of preparing the Plan.
