There will be a public consultation meeting in the Town Hall on Wednesday 27th May 7.00-9.00 to hear about the draft Buckfastleigh and Buckfast Neighbourhood Plan. The Plan is now being prepared following 18 months of community consultation. It will be presented at the Town Hall and all residents, young and old, are warmly invited.
