Parish Council

On this page you will find details of The All Saints Parish Council.

The Parish Council itself is made up of 5 local residents who hold on open meeting for the villagers to attend on a regular basis.

The meetings are held in the Village Hall, and if you have an issue in the Parish that you are concerned about, or an idea you would like to share with us, then please let us know.

Either attend one of the meetings, or phone a Councillor or the Clerk.

The Parish Council is the voice of the parish to local and ultimately central government, if we don’t know what you want then we cannot speak for you.

Greater Exeter Strategic Plan (GESP):
https://www.gesp.org.uk/
A new consultation exercise has been launched which invites members of the public to submit their views as to the proposed Strategic Plan for the Greater Exeter area up to 2040. Comments will be accepted until 10th April 2017.

This consultation aims to gather evidence and views relating to housing and employment provision in the wider Exeter area. There is also a “call-for-sites” element whereby any person(s) with land suitable for development can submit details for further consideration within the remit of the plan.
https://www.gesp.org.uk/consultations/call-for-sites/

Planning clinics Following changes to the EDDC planning procedures for Parish Councils, the fortnightly planning clinic at the Village Hall will end with immediate effect.  Any parishioners or residents wishing to make representations to their elected Councillors about planning matters or planning applications are respectfully asked to attend the next scheduled meeting of the Council where an opportunity to speak / discuss such matters will be provided, either before or during the meeting.  These meetings will be publicised beforehand on this website and on the Village Hall Noticeboard –Clerk. 23.2.16

The SHLAA was a technical exercise in gathering information about possible development site choices.  The SHLAA took into account over-arching considerations such as flooding concerns or achieving acceptable highway access; but it did not make a rounded planning judgement as to whether a site should be developed. The SHLAA formed a database of possible site choices we could choose to draw from when proposing sites to allocate for development. The SHLAA has been superseded by the EDDC Local Plan and is now considered defunct and carries no legal weight in planning terms.

Planning Applications – We as a council will obviously need to assess and respond to any planning application we receive (and potentially any subsequent appeal) in accordance with the recently adopted EDDC Local Plan (as modified).

Planning Policy – The adopted EDDC Local Plan has determined ( after guidance from the Planning Inspectorate ) that All Saints Parish – in its entirety – is designated as “unsustainable” and therefore any future development is subject to stringent and restrictive criteria. This decision has been made to prevent any significant new building projects in the Parish but it also removed the BUAB’s ( Built Up Area Boundaries ) that previously existed. The Parish Council is considering re-commencing the Neighbourhood Plan process which would allow parishioners to take an active part in determining any future planning / development growth within the parish limits. (AUG16)

Financials

All Saints Parish Council Financials:

At the meeting of the Parish Council 8th January 2019, it was unanimously resolved to submit a precept demand of £12000 for the financial year 2019-20. Council regrets having to increase the precept by another £68 but wishes to point out that the increase simply represents the same amount as the grant previously received from EDDC which is now reduced to £0. The effect of this increase in precept will be an additional 2 pence per week per parish household in real terms.

A full statement and report on Council’s finances will be presented at the Annual Parish Meeting on the 5th March by the Chair of the Council.
 
Details of the budget calculations and precept demand are shown
below.
