4. MATTERS ARISING:
4a, Paperless Planning Applications have commenced. The Parish Council remain in objection to the new procedures. A letter detailing alternatives had been sent to the District Council but no reply had been received as they do not reply to letters received under the consultation period. The Parish Council felt that the letter should have received a written response and agreed that the Chairman should write to the Chief Executive requesting a reply to the concerns and alternatives given.
4b, It was reported that the Boundary Commission had made its final decision. The Parish of Dunsford will now remain in the expanded Teign Valley Ward which will now have two Councillors.
