OTTERY residents have been urged to have a say over long-term plans to manage and potentially use minerals like sand and gravel in the parish.

A ‘drop-in’ consultation event on Devon County Council’s (DCC) Minerlas Core Strategy will take place at The King’s School from 3.30pm to 7pm on Wednesday (March 16).

A public consultation will run until the end of April.

County councillor Roger Giles underlined the importance of the town and parish having its say.

He told the Herald: “It is vitally important that the town council, and local residents and organisations, respond to the consultation as there are very large reserves of sand and gravel in the Ottery parish - working of which would have a considerable impact.”
