Our response to the Joint Local Plan publication

We welcome publication of the Joint Local Plan which, so far as the Trust is concerned, is broadly as anticipated, in that it includes a new policy for the Dartington Hall estate.

As a result, over the next few months, we will develop our estate framework in line with that policy working closely with our local community, South Hams District Council and other formal consultees such as Historic England, Natural England and the local Highway Authority. This will enable us to fully explore the scope for new, imaginatively designed development, including housing that is sensitive to the setting of the estate and village and responsive to heritage, natural landscape and highways requirements.  We remain focused on setting a new benchmark for rural development and delivering homes and places that are inspiring, sustainable and socially inclusive.
