Views sought on a revised Meeting Housing Needs document for Mid Devon

Mid Devon District Council is asking for feedback on new guidance for delivering choice and high quality, affordable homes to meet the needs of all local residents.

The Meeting Housing Needs Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been revised to provide a broader scope. It aims to be more inclusive of the needs of Gypsies and Travellers, Travelling Showpeople, people with disabilities, and an ageing population.

The revised version offers more choice in how high quality, affordable new homes can be provided, such as through community-led development, custom and self-build homes, and modern methods of construction. This supports the Council’s five-year housing strategy and provides guidance on how policies within the current Local Plan can be taken forward.

The public consultation will run from Monday 17 July to Friday 25 August 2023 and can be found at: Meeting Housing Needs – MIDDEVON.GOV.UK
