Kingston Plan made part of the planning guidance

At their council meeting on Thursday 20th May, South Hams District Council made the decision to use the Kingston Neighbourhood Plan to help decide planning applications in the parish of Kingston.

The Task Group will now be run down and the website closed in November 2021.

The Plan and key supporting documents will be transferred to the KPC website over the next few weeks.

Here is the final made plan.

Kingston supports the Plan

The next step is for South Hams District Council to “make” the plan. Hopefully at its next meeting on 20th May.

Referendum tomorrow!

Just one more day to read the Kingston Neighbourhood Plan before Kingston Parish votes.

See the 2021 Referendum page for more details.

Next Step: Referendum on 6th May 2021

The Kingston Neighbourhood Plan has reached the next stage which means that it must now be given substantial weight in the planning process.

South Hams District Council and Kingston Parish Council have accepted the Independent Examiner’s Report and the final referendum version of the Plan has been prepared which reflects the Report has also been accepted.

The next step is for the Plan to be put to a vote of Kingston parishioners at the election booked for 6th May 2021. If a majority of voters accept the Plan then it is expected to be made by SHDC soon afterwards.

2020 consultation responses

The many responses have now been published on the SHDC website here.

Thank you very much from the Neighbourhood Plan Team for the many supporting comments.
