East Cullompton Masterplan SPD
East Cullompton is allocated for development in policies CU7–CU12 of the adopted Mid Devon Local Plan to provide around 2,600 new homes (1,750 homes to be built before 2033), community facilities, commercial space and supporting infrastructure including transport improvements and parks and green spaces.
In time, East Cullompton could become part of a larger Culm Garden Village. Culm Garden Village will potentially be included in the next Local Plan for Mid Devon 2023-2043. There will be opportunities to comment on the potential Garden Village, including its boundary and composition, as part of future consultations on the new Local Plan. However, East Cullompton is being planned now in a way that could be successfully expanded in the future.
The Stage 2 public consultation on a draft East Cullompton Masterplan SPD took place between 21 September and 1 November 2022. The draft SPD was revised following the public consultation and taken to Cabinet on 7 February 2023 for approval. Full details of the Cabinet report are available on the Mid Devon website.
Cabinet approved the SPD and recommended the document to Full Council for adoption, with Full Council approving the document for adoption on 26 April 2023.

Summaries of consultation responses
Stage 1 public consultation took place in January/February 2019 on two documents:
- 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.
- 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.
A report was taken to Mid Devon's Cabinet on 30 May 2019 summarising the feedback received from the Stage 1 consultation.
