Planning for development in and around the East Devon National Landscape:
The landscape, beauty and features of the East Devon National Landscape are protected in planning, and all public bodies and statutory undertakers must have regard to the area's National Landscape status, including the effect it will have on the wildlife and fauna as well as the landscape before coming to a decision on the planning application.
The East Devon National Landscape advises local planning authorities about the effect an application will have on the National Landscape, but unlike National Park Authorities, they do not prepare statutory planning documents or determine the outcome of planning applications. Instead they rely on the district and county councils to follow their own individual National Landscape planning policies in order to protect the area's natural beauty from 'harm'.
The East Devon National Landscape are consulted on a variety of planning applications that are likely to have a significant impact on the National Landscape and features. However, they do not tend to comment on applications which have a limited impact, residential extensions for example.
If you have any queries or questions about how an area's National Landscape status may influence your own proposals, the local partnership are generally obliged to advise you to contact the Local Planning Authority for 'advice'...
Needless to say, if you are unsure about how your proposal may be affected, or if there is anything that you'd prefer not to disclose, we would encourage you to take advice from an independent expert before approaching a Council officer!

* Please note that 'small' extensions are not really our cup of tea... However if necessary we would be happy to refer you to a suitable 3rd party specialist.
That said, large, unique extensions and complete 'one off' domestic overhauls really do float our boat... so please get in touch!
