If you are registered to vote in Bigbury, please come along and cast your vote in our Referendum on Thursday 27th Feb 2020 at the Memorial Hall.
The question to be decided is ‘Do you want SHDC to use the Neighbourhood Plan to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’
For the avoidance of doubt, you vote by putting a cross (X) in the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ box on the ballot paper.
If more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’ in the Referendum, then South Hams District Council will use the Bigbury Neighbourhood Plan to help it to decide planning applications within Bigbury.
Therefore, a ‘YES’ vote would provide greater protection from unwanted development within the parish, guided by the Neighbourhood Plan. A ‘NO’ vote would mean a loss of local control over any development – other people would decide where and what type of development would be allowed.
THE DATE FOR THE REFERENDUM ON BIGBURY’S NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN HAS BEEN SET FOR THURSDAY 27TH FEBRUARY 2020.
If you value the opportunity to exercise greater control on development within our parish, please go along to the Memorial Hall, StAnn’s Chapel, and vote.
The version of the NP that will be the subject of a parish referendum, early in the New Year, is now available for scrutiny in the DOCUMENTS section of the NP area on this website. The referendum will be the final stage of the passage of the NP through the planning system.
Three proposal maps associated with the Plan are included here at higher resolution than in the Referendum document. Click on the maps and enlarge at will.
Having been passed (and lavishly praised) by the external Inspector, the NP already carries considerable weight for planning purposes and, of course, was prepared on behalf of Bigbury Parish Council.
As a consultee to the Bigbury Neighbourhood Plan, I am writing to you in accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning regulations to inform you that we have now received the Bigbury Neighbourhood Plan proposal.
We will formally consult on this document for a period of 6 weeks from Monday 29th July – Monday 9th September 2019 before making a formal decision as to whether we should instruct an independent examiner to carry out the examination.
Please respond to this consultation by email to SW-Neighbourhood Planning mailto:NeighbourhoodPlan@swdevon.gov.uk
The invitation to participate in this consultation is repeated in the following document :- Public Notice – Reg 16 SHs
If we do not hear from you before the 9th September 2019 we shall assume you have no comments to make.

Sarah Packham | Neighbourhood Planning Senior Case Manager
West Devon Borough Council | South Hams District Council
The Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are pleased to be able to report that the planning application for the community-led housing scheme proposed on land at Holwell Farm, St Ann’s Chapel was approved, subject to the completion of a Section 106 Agreement, by the South Hams District Council Development Management Committee on 22nd May 2019 (Application Ref: 4214/18/FUL). This was given unanimous support by Members of the Committee who considered that the proposed development was an excellent example of a development designed specifically to meet the local housing needs of a rural parish and comprised a scheme of a very high standard of design and sustainability.
Cllr Valerie Scott, Chair of the NP Steering Group, has provided an overview of the review of the planning application by SHDC, a site map and several drawings of the scheme’s appearance (‘Perspectives’) in the DOCUMENTS section of the NP section of this website: >NP>DOCUMENTS>select file of interest by CATEGORY or title.
