Written notice of an objection must first be given to the auditor and a copy sent to the smaller authority.

The appointed auditor can be contacted at the address in paragraph 4 below for this purpose between the above dates only.

4. The smaller authority’s AGAR is only subject to review by the appointed auditor if questions or objections raised under the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 lead to the involvement of the auditor. The appointed auditor is:

Your Community Needs You!

We are looking for people of all ages from across the Parish of Holbeton to help with the creation of the Neighbourhood Plan providing as little or as much time as you want. The Parish Council is supporting a small group of volunteers who have met three times already and are looking to involve others either on a one off project or a regular commitment.

Under the terms of the Localism Act 2011, local councils are able to draw up Neighbourhood Plans which will establish a framework for planning and development within their area, once complete these plans become part of the statutory development plan for the area, which means that planning decisions will be informed by the Neighbourhood plan.

If you want to influence the development of your parish GET INVOLVED! – the Neighourhood Plan
