Be part of the conversation about planning in your neighbourhood
Plymouth City Council, South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council have launched a pilot scheme called My Place, My Views, to make it easier and simpler for people to have their say about their local areas.
We know habits are changing all the time and we want to capture this by testing a new digital platform to help plan for the future. We want residents to give their views on where they live, what they think about their neighbourhoods and the facilities and services available to them. The information residents share will help shape important future conversations about the Joint Local Plan and boost our understanding of priorities in their areas.
My Place, My Views consists of a simple survey and interactive map which will be open for comments until 5pm on 17 October 2022.
Anyone who fills out the survey or pins a location on the map can opt into a raffle with gift vouchers of up to £100 as prizes. These can be spent across a range of dining, entertainment and experiences across the South Hams, West Devon and Plymouth. Two prizes are up for grabs in each of the authority areas.
My Place My Views is funded by the Government as part of their digital planning and levelling up agenda. The team responsible for the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan is looking at a quicker, bite-size approach to gathering views and opinions. We want to make it easier for people to get involved in planning.
Members of the project team will also be out and about throughout the summer if you want to talk to them or if you are having trouble filling out the survey. We will be publishing the schedule of events on our social media in the next few weeks.
