Last few weeks for Leadengate design guide consultation

Posted on: 24 March 2016

A consultation to help protect the distinctive character and appearance of Leadengate in Croyde is coming to an end.

People have until 11 April to take part in the consultation on the draft ‘Leadengate Design Guide’, which when complete will identify and describe key design features that contribute to the area’s special character.

North Devon Council has been working with the local community to produce the draft document. The consultation aims to find out what local people think of the contents of the draft guide.

Local Ward Member for Georgeham and Mortehoe, Councillor Pat Barker, says: “Thank you to everyone who has responded to our consultation so far and let us know their thoughts about what is special about Leadengate. It’s been a privilege to be involved with this project, I’m very grateful to all of those who have been involved with putting the guide together including the parish council and North Devon Council officers. I look forward to the guide being put to good use in the future and helping to guide development in Leadengate and preserve its unique character.”

Local Ward Member for Georgeham and Mortehoe, Councillor Malcolm Wilkinson, says: “Leadengate is an area that needs preserving, with its unique qualities and characteristics. It’s great that we have this opportunity to produce the guide to respect and preserve the area for future generations.”

Lead Member for Strategic Planning at North Devon Council, Councillor Jeremy Yabsley, says: “For the planning process to work properly we need to make sure that everyone who wants to, gets to have their say and provide their feedback on the various work that we do. This consultation is an opportunity to make sure we include everything in the design guide that is considered special about this specific area of the district. So, if you haven’t done so and there is something you consider special and unique about Leadengate, don’t keep it to yourself, let us know.”
