Previous engagement phase of review

Consultation timetable

The overall public consultation period was for 12 weeks from 3 February 2014 to 27 April 2014.

Phase 1 of the consultation ran online from 3 February and enabled individuals, communities and relevant organisations to comment on the initial proposal.

We considered the responses and used them to adapt the proposal for the Phase 2 stage which ran from 10 March to 27 April 2014. Phase 2 included the opportunity to attend face-to-face meetings to discuss the proposal further.

Consultation responses will be used to inform Devon County Council’s decision making process. There will be an Extra-ordinary Meeting of the full County Council on Wednesday 14 May 2014 followed by a County Council Cabinet Meeting on 11 June 2014.
