The Basic Conditions are that Totnes Community Development Society Community Right to Build Order for Atmos Totnes must:

What happens next?

Following the end of the consultation, comments will be assessed and fed back into the ongoing design process led by Totnes Community Development Society. Objections to the plans will be reported and responded to.
