Welcome to the Lynton and Lynmouth Neighbourhood Plan website.


The Lyn Plan (Neighbourhood Plan) is an important opportunity for our community to prepare our own plan for the parish of Lynton & Lynmouth.


       "Our Future in Our Hands"



The Lyn Plan has been made part of the development plan for the Lynton & Lynmouth neighbourhood area by Exmoor National Park Authority and will be used to decide planning applications locally. Further information can be found on the Exmoor National Park website.

This is the first neighbourhood plan to be made in a National Park and only the fourth in the country. Thank you to everyone who has helped and contributed to developing the neighbourhood plan over the last two years.


The referendum was held on Thursday 21 November where majority voted in favour of the neighbourhood plan. The results were:

YES - 187 votes

NO - 45 votes

Full details of the referendum results are available on the North Devon Council website.
