3. Local Plan First Review - Saved policies
Under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, the Exeter Local Plan First Review policies were saved for 3 years from the date the plan was adopted (until 31 March 2008).
However, the Act allowed the Secretary of State to extend the saving of policies beyond this date where it was not feasible or desirable to replace them.
The Secretary of State has confirmed that the majority of the Local Plan First Review policies will be saved until they are replaced by policies in the Local Development Framework.
