This page provides information  on issues relating to the unique and historic Market area in Totnes.

Extensive concerns were raised by the public on the publication of the Draft Local Plan for Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon in July 2016.

The area and the provisional allocation of 70 dwellings has been removed  from the March 2017 Joint Local Plan. Our Neighbourhood Plan consultation has identified a community desire to see improvements to the area which are highlighted in many of the Task group Theme papers.

Research on the Market square was carried out in 2012/13 by Plymouth University for the Totnes and District Preservation Trust. The report can be seen below
