Ashburton Masterplan

This site at Ashburton is identified in the current Local Plan (Proposal ASH2, below), as a 3.5 hectare site for mixed use redevelopment including housing, commercial and employment uses and a public car park. 

DNPA Members considered a Report to the Meeting of the National Park Authority in April 2016 and another Report in May 2017, and the decision was made that we should cease work on a Masterplan.  Our work on the Local Plan Review has now overtaken the Masterplan.  Any applications which come in should be judged against the allocation in the current local plan, which sets guidelines for development of the site.

A significant amount of the evidence prepared to support the Masterplan (below) is still relevant, however the draft Masterplan should not form part of that decision making process. Anyone wishing to bring forward an application on the site will be encouraged to discuss proposals with the community in advance of submitting any application, and the community will have the opportunity to comment through the formal consultation period.
