Around 80 people visited the village hall to learn about the process that led to the parish council's Neighbourhood Plan steering group designating The Dairy site at Sutton as the location for a small housing development in line with the draft Joint Local Plan drawn up by South Hams District, West Devon Borough and Plymouth City councils.

The exhibition was held on the evening of Friday, April 7, and the following morning.

Display boards, reproduced here, directed people through the process, after which comments were invited. Of the 64 people who filled in a comment form, all but two indicated their satisfaction with the choice of site.
