Interesting article in Dartmouth Today.

Councillors will discuss the progress of the proposed Plymouth and South Devon Freeport when South Hams District Council Executive Committee meet on 27 January 27 2022. Outline proposals, which could mean 3,500 new jobs for the region and a new cycle link, have now been shared with central government. The Full Business Case (FBC) is due for submission in April.

A formal decision by the Council to proceed with the project is required by April 13 2022, when the FBC must be submitted. The project is being put forward in partnership with Plymouth City Council (PCC) and Devon County Council (DCC). Both PCC and DCC will also be taking formal decisions on the Freeport ahead of the FBC submission. A positive decision is required by all three Councils for the Freeport plans to proceed.
