Planning

Find out more about the plans for Sherford’s future

In January, the Sherford Consortium will submit its next planning application, concerning future work at Sherford as the new town progresses. A review process has taken place throughout 2017, including collaboration with community leaders and skilled professionals, and taking on board feedback from homebuyers.The result of this process is that some changes are necessary to embrace new technical and policy requirements and better cope with complexities on site.

What is proposed within the next planning application has been carefully considered to help Sherford evolve in a sustainable and functional way. Public consultation events will be held in the local community to exhibit the plans, explain why the changes are considered necessary, and provide access to the team behind Sherford’s planning and design.

You are welcome to attend the public consultation on either day and we look forward to seeing you there:

Date: ​​Friday 8th and Saturday 9th December 2017

Time: ​​9am – 5pm

Location: ​St. Matthew's Church Hall, Sherford Road, Elburton, Plymouth, PL9 8DQ

Please note, if you are a member of the Local Authorities in the South Hams or Plymouth, or a community interest group, you may have received a separate invitation to attend a Developer’s Forum session, from 2pm – 4pm, on Thursday 7th December 2017, at Follaton House in the Council Chamber. You are welcome to attend either or both events.
