There is a planning policy requirement to produce a Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on the part of the site proposed to be allocated under the Mid Devon Local Plan Review.   The proposed allocation is only part of a larger Garden Village, but it is important to masterplan the Garden Village as a whole to make the most of its unique opportunities.  For this reason, we will be producing a Vision and Concept document covering the whole of the Garden Village, and initially going into more detail on the East Cullompton Masterplan SPD area. 

As part of this masterplanning process, we are currently thinking about how the Garden Village should look and function and are asking for your views on a draft Vision for the Garden Village, and some initial ideas and concepts for the Garden Village, developed with the participation of various technical and community groups. 

We’ve also started to identify what’s needed in terms of community facilities: schools, healthcare, sports and leisure, retail, and looking at how these facilities can complement those in Cullompton itself.  It is vital that the Garden Village has good transport links and these are being considered alongside masterplanning the Garden Village itself. 

We are  now asking for your views on two documents:

  1. The Culm Garden Village Vision and Concept Document sets out a draft Vision and a number of key principles to guide development at the proposed new garden village, together with a Concept Plan which starts to add shape to ideas on how the garden village might look.
  2. The Stage 1 draft East Cullompton Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document sets out a number of issues and opportunities based on an analysis of the site which are brought together to inform some initial concepts for the masterplanning of the East Cullompton Local Plan Review allocation, which will form Phase 1 of the garden village.

The consultation is now closed.

The consultation is taking place over a six-week period from 18 January 2019 to 1 March 2019.  Permanent exhibitions will be set up at The Hayridge, Cullompton and Kentisbeare Village Hall during this time, with a series of staffed exhibitions throughout the consultation period:
