March 2011. The Plan was endorsed by Axmouth Parish Council and a short version delivered to all Axmouth households. East Devon endorsed the Plan in August 2011.
The Plan was launched at a community party on 5 March. District Councillor Ian Thomas, County Councillor Jim Knight and Parish Council Chair Carol Rapley were presented with copies of the full Plan.
Parish Plan Committee Chair Jon Underwood said “I think this shows our strong community spirit. Despite being a small village we have a lot to be proud of. Axmouth has been settled for 2,000 years, and boasts an Iron Age hill fort, a 12th century church and numerous listed buildings.
“We also have a national nature reserve, part of the Jurassic Coast, the Axe Estuary plus a dozen locally important sites. There’s a lot here we all want to preserve, but there are also things we would like to add – more and better paths for example.”
The plan team made a giant commemorative cake, featuring their logo, which was cut by two of stars of the recent village pantomime – Ella Rapley and Jessie Spiller. Villagers then washed it down with several cases of a local sparkling cider.
