South Hams District Council is "delighted" to see the formal making of the neighbourhood plan for Ringmore.

The plan was made formally at South Hams’ full council meeting on 31 March. It will now be a statutory part of the Local Development Plan and will have an influence on potential future planning developments in the Ringmore area.

A neighbourhood plan plays an important role in shaping the decisions made by the district council's planning committee in the years ahead. The communities adopting a neighbourhood plan have their chance to say whether they think such a plan should be adopted; on 17 March, 81.8% of local people who voted in a referendum supported the plan.

Cllr Bernard Taylor, ward member for Charterlands, said: “It is very encouraging to see South Hams communities taking proactive steps to shape and protect their local area for the future. Ringmore is just the latest community in the South Hams to adopt a neighbourhood plan; it’s a real sign that our residents are passionate about the district."
