Tavistock masterplan comes under scrutiny
RESIDENTS are being asked to have their say on guidelines which will help to shape the future development of hundreds of new homes in Tavistock.
Land in the town has been earmarked for new housing, jobs, education and open space.
The developments would also see the rail line to Bere Alston reinstated, allowing travellers to use the train to get to Plymouth.
West Devon Borough Council wants people to give their views on a planning document which will provide guidance for the development of two sites; one off Callington Road and one off Plymouth Road.

The council has produced a draft "Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document" which sets out the broad principles for future development on these sites when it comes to issues such as land use, design, infrastructure and time scales.
Councillor Robert Oxborough, the chairman of community services, said: "This is not about the fine detail of design but about the higher strategic principles that will help to ensure that any new development is of a high quality and in keeping with the distinctive character of our lovely town."
People will be able to see the document, ask questions and give their views at Tavistock Town Hall on Thursday, March 21 from 11am to 4pm.
The document will also be available on the council's website along with a form for people to make their comments.
The public consultation starts on Thursday, March 7 and all views must be received by 5pm on April 8.
