Dartington’s Neighbourhood Plan is overseen by Dartington Parish Council who have been working on the Neighbourhood Plan since January 2014 . A Steering Group, consisting of Councillors and others who were interested, was set up to drive the plan. There is information about the Steering Group including minutes of meetings on the Steering Group page of this website.

The  June 2020 Pre Regulation 14 consultation document is the most recent version of the Neighbourhood Plan. You can find the full document from the following link  pre REG 14 draft 1

The 2020 Summer issue of Our Dartington, the parish magazine, contained the Vision, Aims Objectives and Policies of the Neighbourhood Plan . The magazine is delivered to every household in the parish and is also available digitally on the Dartington Parish Council website.  To go to magazine page of the Dartington Parish Council website, click here: https://dartington-pc.gov.uk/the-parish/dartington-parish-magazine/

Previous versions of the NP are on the “Emerging Draft to Final Draft” page of this website.

Accessibility statement:

Dartington Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. 

Contrast issues on this website have been addressed and the website is mobile friendly and can be viewed in landscape or portrait layout. Pages are clearly titled and the use of colour in the text is minimal.

The Council is aware that there are issues with this website and is working to resolve these page by page.

Issues include some of the PDFs on the website not  being accessible especially agendas and minutes  which have been written using a table which in accessibility terms should be used only for numerical data. This is being corrected.

Some of the content might be difficult to be  interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies and we are working to address this.

The layout and structure needs to be improved.  The way information on some pages is presented means the page is very long. This is being worked on.

Some photographs do not yet have  a description and a description is being added.

Some pages do not have heading in the correct sequence and this is being addressed. 

The link text in some cases is not clear or descriptive enough.

There are many ARIA errors which could make using the site difficult for users of assistive technology.

Please contact Kate Wilson the Parish Clerk  if you have any comments using the email dartingtonparishcouncil@outlook.com
